One thing I’ve been wondering about is how everyone looks so familiar here. Every time we visit the town, I keep staring at people (especially the older ones), thinking that I know them. It wouldn’t be impossible because this is where my family comes from (almost all of the younger ones have moved elsewhere but the older folks remain in the Savonlinna region). But no, every time I have to conclude that they are all strangers to me. I think I figured it out today though. The older folks all look so… Savo. Not just Finnish, but southern Savo. I will probably look just like them in 20-30 years.

The windy weather has continued. I have just about exhausted my ideas for windy weather photography, so I can only hope for the weather to turn tomorrow…
