Eveliina, Venla and Inge
Inge has had a pen-pall in Finland for 13 years now and they have never met before. I have heard some stories about her over the years so I was quite curious too :)
We first spend the morning in the hostel, it was raining, so we watched some Olympics on tv. We took the bus to the center and bought some postcards. After writing the postcards in a cafe we took the bus to were Inge's pen-pall is living. We were also a bit curious about how Finnish people are living.
Eveliina and her husband were very nice and we spend some nice time there talking, drinking tea and they made us a very nice diner with real finnish dessert, although we had to leave quite early to catch the train to Kuopio. They also have a very sweet daughter Venla, who didn't like our dutch childrens song, or maybe it was our singing ;)
We just made our train, and when we had to change trains we had our first delay with trains in Finland, it was arriving 20 minutes to late. To get to the reception of our hostel we didn't even have to leave the station :) Our room was in a building just across the street from the trainstation, so that was very easy. We walked a little bit through the town, but is was clouded and grey so we decided to go back and see if there was any olympics on tv :D
