Wake up late again... seems like a trend here!  Yan isn't working and is just getting back from 5 months in South East Asia so I think he is used to a slightly different time frame than the rest of Finland.  I've been here almost 2 days and I still haven't even met his parents who are living in the same house!  We eat at a local pizzeria that makes a great 'za.

We head back to his house and hit the sauna, because apparently every house in Finland has a sauna inside.  I can only imagine how amazing that is in the dead of winter when its colder than ice outside.  Feeling refreshed we take the car (first time I've been in a car in Finland) and drive to the beach not too far away where we take a short nature hike and watch some crazy kite surfers brave the cold waters under the beautiful evening sky.

Finally, I get to meet his parents as his Mom makes us dinner... and it is AMAZING!  She cooks up some salmon and potatoes and does it perfectly.  His mother is quiet but very nice and it seems that she can't be bothered with the fact that there is a stranger living in her house.  I try to show my appreciation but shortly after dinner we are off again, headed downtown to shoot some pool, again. 

We make a pit stop at the Ice Bar and then hit up the hottest nightclub in Finland... Redrum is anything but hot, but we enjoy ourselves enough before heading home on the last train out of the city.
