Today we went to Fiskars (yes, the very one scissors ), about 30km from Karjalohja. There was a flea market, and I bought thoses 2 old pins from winter war, one was a finnish flag and the other one was a small "armoirie" of the town of Helsinki (I have no clue how to say that in english.. but you know, this small "emblem" for each town? for exemple, Helsinki's "armoirie" is a small boat on a white sea and a blue sky?). Anyway. We also visited the Fiskars museum and the small local shops.
When we came back to the cottage, we ate supper and then we watched Aki Kaurismäki's "Tulitikkutehtaan tyttö" movie (the match factory girl). I really liked it! It's a really dark humor type of movie (I admit, I rather have a really dark type of humor.. I am really sarcastic and ironic.) anyway.
Did you know there are vipers in Finland? only one is dangerous. it's called "kyy" in finnish. It's actually really funny for me, because kyy is pronounced the same way as "cul" (in french) and cul means "*ss". so Outi and I were always laughing when we were telling each other "Watch out for the huge kyy hiding in the hay!" XD
but to come back to the serious subject about kyy. the smallest ones are the dangerous, because they are filled with poison. bigger ones have already used their poison so their bites are less poisonous than small ones (is that clear or do you want me to explain it a bit more to you? just write me on my page and i will explain it to you!
We again went to the sauna! yep, I am a crazy sauna fanatic. or so Outi calls me. but what can I say! I just love sauna, and running to the lake and jumb in the cold water. it's fun. We had few beers at the sauna. I liked the Karjala beer. and the Hartwall grape longdrink. but those one had a weird after taste. It happens sometimes.
