2009 Trip – Day 1

Uneventful flights from Tallinn, but security unhappy with my bag again.

At Oulu bus station, hundreds of students were trying to catch buses to Ruka.  Apparently I had clashed with some species of holiday.  I finally got onto the 3rd and last bus which left 45 minutes late.  I tried to phone Timo:  Good news, SIM card still active, but bad news, he can hear me but I can’t hear him.  I discovered that text messages still worked OK.

At the farm I discover that my lantern and bag of clothes are missing; Timo instigates search and after a while delivers a map case for me to borrow which turns out to be the one I lost two years ago and thought was somewhere at home!
