I still read the blog, just so you know! :-)


We all do.


Sari, I note your comments on swimming with some nostalgia for Uimastadikka. Our son Johannes has recently started taking swimming lessons. The water at the public swimming pool here is freezing cold. After his first swimming lesson his lips were blue for like two hours afterwards, but then, on the other hand, that used to be the norm after having swam at Lake Rautavesi when I was a child. The swimming instructor here recommends that one should wear a T-shit and a swimming cap in order to keep warm in water. Wonder how the T-shirt would go down in Uimastadikka...


T-Shirts while swimming? Very weird not to mention unhygienic, there must be oodles of chloride in the water... The only pool I ever used in States - a private suburban "club" - was quite warm enough.

The only good thing about abysmally cold summer has been the fact that there has been plenty of room to swim at stadikka.
