Parainen

Since I've just taken a lovely sauna and have about as much ambition as a wet noodle, I'll refer you to ellen_kushner 's exclamation-studded and utterly accurate account of our day.

There are seagulls flying by our window, and the light is turning amber.  The fish was even better than Ellen suggested, the blueberry pie (which I am entirely convinced was cooked blueberries spooned over raw cookie dough) was delicious, the hegehog booties beyond adorable (they're sitting on the desk as I type, looking like something Tove Jansson would have drawn, and probably did), and a cool breeze wafting in the window.  Tomorrow, we'll be on a boat, put-putting around the Turku Archipelago and ending up in Nauvo.  It will be prime.

Wow. Now I'm multiply sorry I didn't manage to submit an abstract for my own Finnish conference.

And you know of course that the town you are in is actually called Väståboland ("The 'largest' archipelago town in the world" http://www.vastaboland.fi/web/en_GB/framsida/ ) and Parainen is only a small part of it. ;)

So I've been given to understand. Tero called it "an opportunity for bureaucracy," or something very like that. But I have enough trouble spelling "Paranainen," especially with no accents on my computer (that I can use easily). :-)
