2007 Trip – Day 1

Ick, uck!  Sleepless (almost) night on the train arriving hungry and thirsty at 0605. Unfortunately, bus station doesn’t open until 0700. A kind Finn directed me to a very small kiosk, but they could only sell me a fizzy drink and a Mars bar which made my teeth hurt.  I took refuge in the railway station waiting room and was the first customer at the bus station.  A grumpy lady sold me a Jurmu ticket together with a tea and a pasty.

Amazingly, the bus driver hadn’t heard of Jurmu (despite it being a scheduled stop) and had to look it up. After we left Pudasjärvi he even got out his GPS, presumably to help find the stop.

I was met at the bus stop by Timo. When we got to the farm I helped to start some guests, but then went to sleep.  I woke up for lunch and dinner.
