23. & 24. october 2012
For two nights I have now been staying at Hotel Kaatrahovi (www.kaatrahovi.fi) in Lieksa, where Svetlana showed true hospitality - thank you very much. The hotel is located central in Lieksa, which made it easy to walk into the city to put up information about the bikingtour at all bigger stores. K-market, S-market a.o.

I also enjoyed the visit to a bakeri and tried their pasteries, informing them about the Bikingtour at the same time.
In the late afternoon, I went to the local newspaper, Lieksa Lehti and their reporter Marco Heikinnen. He interviewd me for halv an hour and went back together with me to the hotel in order to take pictures. In a couple of days, he will sent med the article by mail.
The next stop was at the police-station, where I made inquieries about the Wolf that has been shot only some weeks ago in the area of Lieksa and by order of the local police. I got the full written report handed over by a policeman - yet in Finish, but I will translate it in order to get a better picture of why it is the police that is making decisions on wolfs in this area.
Today I will go on towards Joensuu, to the village of Vuonislahti.
