Mom took us to her forest spot for picking wild strawberries that are super delicious! The traditional way to collect them is to string them to a straw :) We also visited my aunt Tuula's house today and had a lovely time - here she shows us how to play a big kantele.
Above is a view from Tuula's family sauna we checked out earlier today. I'm really fascinated with old Finnish rustic buildings, tapestries and design of everyday artifacts now that I've had some distance from them - it's a really attractive, natural and uniquely beautiful esthetic and I'm going to take more photos of it during my time here.
Yes, tonight Daniel had his first Sauna experience here at our house. Above we're chilling between the heat in a room next to the sauna. My childhood home was built about 80 years ago and we have a separate sauna building on the backyard. This is the view of our house from the sauna:
It's 10pm and it's bright out like it's 4pm, I'm still not re-used to the lightness! But am loving it!!
