Yes... on the road again towards Tohmajärvi to meet the local newspaper:

Pictures: Another pressconference and picture shooting, this time for the local newspaper of Tohmajärvi: Alasin.

It is not everytime that the newspapers are interested in the tour, but today I was interviewed by two different newspapers: another one at Kitee:

Pictures: Interview by Koti-Karjala. Due to a book-release, I was also invited for cake and coffee.

In Kerimäki, it was Hotel Herttua (www.herttua.fi), that kindly sponsored me. It is situated on a peninsula in lake Peruvesi, sharing the quiete nature with strange defense-constructions from WWII. The hotel seems to be built in the middle of a vaste variety of digged channels, where soldiers used to hide from the enemy. Today the hotels guests are both Finish and Russian and everything about the hotel breaths tranquility and well-being. If someone looks for refreshment and chill out, sauna, bath, massage and healthy food, this seems to be the place in the area. Thanks a lot Hotel Herttua for sponsering the tour!!!
