It’s hard to believe, but today marks two months since we arrived in Finland! Summer is in full swing now and there seems to be a festival or two every week! We almost feel as if Turku is a different city now than it was when we first got here. The city is now in bloom, the temperature is in the upper 70’s, the market square is alive and bustling, and the Baltic Sea is a hot-spot for a summer swim. To celebrate having adapted to the Finnish lifestyle for 61 days we had dinner at a charming little restaurant along the Aurajoki River called Pinella. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun and relaxed.
Here is that strange looking tree that I posted about at the beginning, and now that it’s in bloom. We still haven’t figured out what this tree is called, no one here seems to know.
