I remember when I was a kid, the fair was a huge thing when it came to town every spring and every autumn. All the junk they sell… useless stuff, but for a kid, it’s everything. As I recall, every time during the fair, the weather was awful. It wasn’t all bad today, but there were a few snowflakes coming down.
The trip to Lappeenranta was the fastest I’ve ever done. Morning flight which took me to Helsinki in time to take a morning train which got me to Lappeenranta so I could have lunch with dad. Smooth.
