23-27 june

24-25th june is juhannusaatto and juhannuspäivä
midsummer night and day
important holiday for finnish
there are two major activities they do usually

they go their remote cottage and enjoy nature/sauna/food/family/silence

or drink

in both cases a huge bonfire is essential


i went to rovaniemi (the capital of lapland where santa claus lives, 300 kms to south from vasatokka) where i couchsurfed with an iraqui guy
interesting experience, he was very kind and hospitable, however fairly busy with ramadan




10 minutes walk from citycenter

on friday night it rained ruefully






i fell in love with the bike ali lent me

i wanted to hitchhike back on sunday
in 4.5 hours i get ahead 40 kms, bugs chopped me
the season of the beast called black fly is starting, they are much more deadly than innocent mosquitos
i turned back to rovaniemi
this is the second time i swear i never hitchike again in lapland on sunday
