After two days of travel--10 hour flight to London on Saturday, then a 3 hour flight from London to Helsinki and a 2.5 hour train ride, I am in my flat in Jyvaskyla! While tiring, the trip was uneventful. The problem is the 10 hour time difference from California. That's why I'm writing this at 4:48 AM (Monday) since it is only "supper time" (6:48 PM Sunday) for my body and brain.
Here are a few images from the last leg of my trip. I took a bus from Helsinki airport to a nearby train station at Tikkurila which you can see below. There are some smudges of snow still on the ground and as we traveled north, the snow, at times was falling densely (1-2 feet on the ground) among the birch trees and on the farms. The countryside was beautiful! I couldn't get a picture because the train was moving so fast and the weak light required the shutter open too long, creating blurred images.
Arrival at 13 Puistokatu:
Time to try to sleep a bit!
