For the second day of our trip Monika suggested that we visit the Finnish National Library. This was not a destination we would normally have selected, but it was really a very interesting and recently restored building.
The first room you enter has a magnificent dome surrounding which are beautifully decorated arches. Through a door is a three storey reading room.
In the central tower Monika found a heavy read…
…but Sophia found something rather lighter.
Whilst Marina went back to her University days.

In the morning I saw an animal walking across the lake. I speculated that it might be a fox and Timo later confirmed that this was the most likely.
I managed to leave Kÿlkeinen by 0930, but attempts to go South across Hämeenvaara proved impossible. Eventually I returned to the kennels and dumped my bag. I then headed to Jänisvaara for lunch and at about 1500 drove North to Juusi’s place which is very impressive with lots of potential but clearly still needs a lot of work. Took the opportunity to have a shower.
Overall the dogs were reluctant to go when the snow was soft, but did better on firmer surfaces.
