Where to go, what to do now?
Having the luxury of no deadlines in time or space, I decide to go to the nearest big town to do some serious internet. No internetcafe available, but free internet in the library. Only bummer is that I have to reserve a computer for one hour at a time, which is normally oke, but when you have some serious catching up to do, time flies!
So going back and forth to the desk begging for another FREE hour of internet. See how long they let me stay here...

After a quick visit at the TIC, they find me a small basic campsite. Perfect, basic means cheap! The weather is still crap, rainy and cold, but traveling low-budget I decide to sleep in my tent instead of a cabin (10 or 30 euro). After preparing my food in the cold outdoors, I decide to eat it in the 'cafe'. Try to talk the owners. I don't know much Finnish yet, but it happens that my Thai language skills come in handy as the wife of the owner is Thai! I think they feel sorry for me sleeping in my tent, so they offer me a cabin instead, for the same price! How lucky I am!!

Cos of the serious internet updating, relaxed city admosphere, the sun (thanks Chris!!) and my free upgrate at the campsite I decide to stay here for a few days. When not spending time at the library (they know my name by now...), I look around Lahti and surrounding area. Photos of that will follow later.
Tomorrow I will be on the move again, making my way slowly towards Savonlinnen I think...
