We are in Finland for just a few days. Olga needs to be in Finland because of some visa restrictions, and I need do a little work with a friend in Helsinki.
We return to Russia on Thursday and then go to the States on Monday the 12th.
We’re staying at the cabin, Koppero, we’ve mentioned before. The snow is about 6 inches deep and the lake is still frozen solid. It will take several hours to get the cabin warmed up, but we have a nice hot fire going.
Ken Rundell made it possible for us to stay here. This was his summer home when he was married to a Finnish lady named Pirkko. He welcomed us here years ago, and we’ve returned many times.
Pirkko’s nephew, Juhani, is now the owner, and he’s very happy for us to visit here and help keep the place up.
We are very thankful for this blessing, one of many Finnish blessings we’ve received.
