A Wedding in Vaasa

2014-07-05 13.31.31“I’ve seen you naked.”

This was the first thing I heard when I stepped into the church for Antti & Tiina’s wedding.  “I’ve seen you naked.” Thing was… he had. This was Vesa, whom long time readers will remember from my first time in a Finnish Sauna almost exactly six years ago.  Continue reading

Powerland and Finnish sports…

I’m SO embarrassed. How could I have forgotten, in the excitement that was Berny’s, the clock on the wall, the piece de résistance, which ran backwards? Ah well… I’ll fix it in post. Maybe.
