|Took during my Sunday bike ride|
Hi, all: I can't believe it, but the weather back home is colder than it is here in Finland. While we have enjoyed temperatures in the 40s and near 50 (which is actually very nice for this time of year), back in N.C., the weather has already dipped into the 30s!
|The Rauma ice hockey arena|
|Figure skaters performed during time-outs|
We went to our first hockey match this weekend with some friends. It was the big rivalry -- Rauma versus Pori. I'm happy to report that Rauma won 4-1. Hockey still isn't my favorite sport, but it was fairly entertaining. The best part was the figure skaters who performed during the time-outs. The arena was very nice and of course, was packed with local fans.
Tom tried out the sauna this weekend, but I still haven't had any interest in sitting for 30 minutes in extreme heat and humidity. I know it's supposed to be good for your skin and all, but so far, the only time I've been in the sauna is to hang laundry. Yes, the sauna is multi-purpose.
I'm excited because we finally are going to Helsinki this coming weekend. The only time we have spent there is at the airport. We are staying at the Radisson Blu, near the town's only casino, so we will report back to Tom's poker buddies if we get brave enough to play.
