I made it to Vaasa and it’s beautiful. We are right on the sea which is nice although I miss the mountains a bit! There are 2 other American women here – we work together and have also become good friends which has been wonderful. Lots of salmon, saunas and biking – doing the Finnish thing! To Sweden next week on the ferry for an overnight. I tried to call you but screwed up. What are your Christmas plans? Keep in touch – hope all is well.
