We spent time going for walks in the area and shopping for groceries checking out all the food items that I find so difficult to buy in Oz e.g. the huge selection of rye bread, piima & viili ( cultured milk products) and ready made pastry and pulla. I would have to make these from scratch - they are all on the Supermarket shelf. We'll enjoy it all while we can.
It was cold and overcast but despite the weather the community where A&K live celebrated an anniversary of this estate. A stage was set up for local bands to provide music for the whole day a few food stalls as well as trash & treasure. It looked as though the locals just enjoyed being out after a long cold winter. We had fun spending time with little Zoe too who really enjoyed the outdoors and ended up falling asleep in her little cart while being towed around.
Rina and I stayed the nights with a cousin nearby who has a little more room, so it was good catching up with her in the evenings but found it hard to get to bed early because it is daylight till forever, even after sunset!
