Home Tomorrow

We're more or less packed and ready to go.  I'll be sorry to leave, you betcha, although our last-minute upgrade to business, the promise of pastures of plenty at Helsinki airport, and the prospect of clean clothes and my own bed at the end of the journey are going some way towards reconciling me.  I'll have 8 hours in the air to catch up on posts about Our Excellent Adventure in the Kuhmo Kalevala Village and our last whirlwind tourist day in Helsinki, when we saw four museums and walked for miles and miles and decided we had to come back.  In point of fact, we planned our next trip here over dinner, including Sami country and Sweden and Estonia and Vilna, where Ellen's grandmother came from.

And now it's time to go to bed.
