Here is Chris in the market square in Turku. It is 3 pm. It has been raining and streets are wet and slippery. Sophia stayed at the apartment to set up her bedroom, but Chris and I ventured out to change money, buy food and we applied for and received our library cards! I asked a stranger, in Finnish, where the library was and he called my bluff by answering in several paragraphs worth of Finnish, but ended up showing us the way. This will be the hard part; understanding the Finnish replies.


  1. At least your Finnish would be better than my French....Mark

  2. The Finnish is hard, I tell ya!
