The visit was really good - I got to their place at about 14h and then we went by car to see the sights around Jokela. There are not many, it is true, but still Tomi somehow manages to find some interesting places to show you there. It was a nice atmosphere also, to visit complteley empty open museums in a cold autumn wind. When we went back (and after some electricity problems), Tomi proved to be an excellent cook by preparing an excellent reindeer. Then for some sauna (no running naked through the forest this day) and back to bed.
The next day they received an Australian guest that stayed at home while we went out to Hämeenlinna, a quite desert but nice town for a walk around some parks, a visit to the town castle and to a nearby watchtower with a lake and forest view that looks exactly like the picture in my Finnish teacher's textbook cover. In the evening Claudio, the Roman guy (from the Espoo meeting) who lives in Helsinki, joined us for dinner, wine and a very good Finnish movie - The man without a past.
And finally it was time to leave. All since I first met Tomi and Vera it felt like we were neighbours, meeting at various times in Brazil and in Finland with short intervals. Now we are not anymore... :(
Tomorrow I shall upload some photos and a couple more entries.

Happy teacher ...
I must say that I'm really happy! You're a very good student - remember even the book cover! And of course, you have to study Kalevala! Remember Värttinä lyrics?
