From Tuesday afternoon until today, Pete and I joined Miska and his son, at their summer cottage just outside of the town of Nilsiä. We had an excellent time learning about Finnish culture (particularly the experience of a summer cottage, sauna and the treat of fresh fish for lunch), the Finnish language (Miska’s son is an excellent and patient teacher) and the local plants and birds (so that Pete will be prepared for his fieldwork in a few weeks time).


Below is a 360° view of the property where the summer cottage is:

On Wednesday, we went for a walk in Tiilikkajärvi National Park. Half way through our walk, we made use of a camp site fireplace to roast some makkara, a local sausage.
