Today, I started from Solojärvi in the middle of the day.
By phone I could get into contact with Mauri Nieminen, a friend of Bror Eriksson form Lainio who so wonderfully helped me with lots of things. Thank you again Bror!!! I reached Inari before night - but in heavy rain...
I was sponsored with one night at the hotel at Kultahovi Hotel:
Day number two, I was able to meet Mauri at the hotel reception for a 30 min long interview.
Picture 2: Bernd Nietz from Friedeburg in Germany also was interested in the project - as many of the tourists I met on the tour.

Picture 4: Mauri and I with the Pessinki Wolf. I conducted a most interesting interview with Mauri at the hotel. He had come to Inari just to meet me. Thank you Mauri!
22. and 23. september:
I have decided to stay two more days in Inari - for three reasons: one: I have to seek help to get my bike repaired, otherwise it will break down during the 38 km to Ivalo. Secondly, I want to use the time to get into contact with the Sami population, that is living here in and around Inari. Inari is as much a center for the Finnish Sami as Jokkmokk was for the Swedish Sami. As a third I have to have time to update the blogg.
So I will put up my posters and flaggs in the center of Ivalo and seek the discussion about this infected subject.
I changed from Kultahovi Hotel to Holliday Village Camping. They sponsor me with a very good price for the 2 nights. Thank you Holliday Village Camping!
