Summer is here!

Summer in Finland surprises me! Although I haven't yet seen the temperatures top 20 degrees, I am assured this is summer. In fact, just yesterday, I discovered that we were dangerously close to mid-summer (25th June). Mid-Summer is supposed to be a big event in Finland, almost as big as Vappu (sp?).

After Mid-Summer it will be all downhill as far as daylight is concerned. Not that I am complaining, since its never dark now. The sky was rainbow coloured at 1am last night! Luckily, I haven't suffered from any sleep problems on account of the light as people had led me to believe. 1am is standard sleeping time. :-)
