Jyväskylä, Finland - 21st October 2012

By: mmm105

Hi mommy!

Today I visited to see the oldest building of Jyväskylä.
The building called as Taavettilan riihi, which is in English the drying barn of Taavettila.
The building has buildt somewhere in 1700's, the exact year is unknown.
First, building used as a drying barn, but somewhere in 1800's it became usual barn/cabin and it got windows then. In 1900's the building started to be a cabin museum.


Jyväskylän vanhin rakennus = the oldest building of Jyväskylä
Riihi muutettu tuvaksi 1800-luvun alussa = a drying barn has turn to be a cabin in the beginning of 1800's
Jyväskylän yliopisto = University of Jyväskylä
Rakennus 3 = Building 3

The door was closed. I tried to open it, but it was locked.

Because we didn't have a chance to go in, we decided to look through the window...

Hei! Hello!

It's cold, white, and it's covering everything!!!  :o  :o  :o

YES!!! It's the first snow!!!  :o

Winter is just around the corner... Temperature has been about -3 degrees Celcius the hole day.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oXUy-IzC4uk/UIrPx71-wDI/AAAAAAAARsU/5FH5FxkcFOM/s550/010.JPG

Brrrrr... snow is so cold!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/--iSTqF19G_s/UIrPxrOUazI/AAAAAAAARsM/Wlhvitf5FOA/s550/018.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-7Y99iHtC0nI/UIrR1g_9s5I/AAAAAAAARwk/q29HLTtC2Pw/s549/033.JPG

Ilomantsi, Finland - 1st November 2012

By: mmm105

Hei! Hello!

Kurnau told me, that we all toys can travel with hostmom, when she will visit her parents in other side of Finland in this weekend. I was totally exited about it. It's so cool to see other placed in Finland, too.

Kurnau showed me the map. Can you see the spots A and B in the map? Yes, that's our travel plan, it's about 320 kilometres.
We are going to little village called Ilomantsi. It's in the Northern Karelia in Finland.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-3uNDlxYw3EE/UJVWD0JEnqI/AAAAAAAAR3s/AbHmwKDYI9g/s512/IMG_9985.JPG

After sitting 4 hours in the car, I was tired and I wanted to relax.
So, I experienced one Finnish thing, how to relax and take a bath at the same time: I went to sauna!!!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-SVJT8BJTT8o/UJVWl-T5VhI/AAAAAAAAR4M/ZQom1EndP-I/s512/IMG_9869.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-P6Dri_7rJEE/UJVWmyDa3II/AAAAAAAAR4c/j5Nq7tdILvA/s512/IMG_9871.JPG

And guess what?  :o
I met saunatonttu (=the elf of sauna) there!!!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-RqZEEtkqugc/UJVWBLqGVVI/AAAAAAAAR24/l5jiRGiFp0M/s512/IMG_9879.JPG

This room, sauna, is a hot place. Saunas are very common in Finland (maybe because the cold and long winter seasons?!?). Finns go to sauna to wash themselves, but also to relax. They throw some water to the kiuas (it's like the "oven", and there are some stones on it), and this hot kiuas makes the hole room so warm place to be.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-HeXvSQ-2v7Q/UJVWnZtTiHI/AAAAAAAAR4g/ODeQ0tuo9EU/s512/IMG_9887.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5jbCL_ui-AA/UJVWnKOlDLI/AAAAAAAAR4k/KyxcWQRc46k/s512/IMG_9886.JPG

AAAaaaaahh, I'm sooooo relaxed now!!!

Love,
Bussi

Ilomantsi, Finland - 2nd November 2012

By: mmm105

Hi!

Unfortunately, the weather is awful here... it's raining a lot...  :(
So, there's no sightseeing here today...

But, the bad weather is not the problem for us!  :) We can do many fun things inside, too.  :D

At first, I want to show you the coat of arms of Ilomantsi. It looks like this:

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-YXXiIlWMxKU/UJVWoufwQII/AAAAAAAAR5A/vSUXtJnCQpQ/s512/IMG_9902.JPG

And because there's three kanteles (kantele = it's one kind of instrument) in the picture of the coat of arms, I wanted to play this instrument.

And happily I can say, that I did it. I played kantele.  :D  B)
Kantele is the national instrument of Finland, and especially in Karelia.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-inMmxlrxogY/UJVWB3cZYnI/AAAAAAAAR28/UJtC1GXx0YQ/s512/IMG_9889.JPG

Others played it, too.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-b8vKbvp4PnU/UJVWoLzIJDI/AAAAAAAAR4w/3jKVkD7gas4/s512/IMG_9901.JPG

And then, we found this marvellous little building! Wow!  :o

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-h-703qkKMKs/UJVWl-zuMaI/AAAAAAAAR4I/kTgKGh4es2k/s405/IMG_9868.JPG

Hi hiiiiii!!!!! Here I am!  ;)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LlSxQcNk3Qw/UJVWBX6omKI/AAAAAAAAR20/MCZCEmH8ag8/s476/IMG_9860.JPG

And then, I saw something, what I first couldn't believe...  :o

Look yourself! Is it cool? So many medals and pokals etc!!!  :o  :o

...Hih, and I'm there somewhere, too. Can you find me?

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bV7G95uioyk/UJVWoq2ruaI/AAAAAAAAR48/AaRK4epCttY/s512/IMG_9903.JPG

Well, can you see me now?

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-TC96OwfH7Cg/UJVWpKE3brI/AAAAAAAAR5I/xtKofdPleh8/s505/IMG_9904.JPG

Great! You found me!!! Well done!  :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-815cn_gtaKg/UJVWqF352iI/AAAAAAAAR5U/N3Dp5MKi9pg/s512/IMG_9912.JPG

Oh, one more photo for today...

I'm dreaming: "...and the winner is....... BUSSI!!!"
Hurray!!!  :p

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-9M7XWwteEtA/UJVWCSFHU0I/AAAAAAAAR3E/VbI4E3nZ0k8/s512/IMG_9920.JPG

It was fun day!

By: mmm105

Hello!

It's last day of our visit in Ilomantsi, and the weather is still bad... :(

Well, because outside is terrible, we decided to make nice inside this house.
Yes, we are going to bake some cookies! :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-tCgMGCg42ZY/UJVWqJx6tRI/AAAAAAAAR5c/BbpRDEy1skE/s512/IMG_9928.JPG

First need to use kaulin (= a rolling pin).

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JCmKlgyWIj0/UJVWCtltuuI/AAAAAAAAR3Q/EuYGvnNvTIE/s512/IMG_9936.JPG

Then it's time to make cookies. I made bunny shaped cookies. :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LTVIYcbmtCo/UJVWC0POA8I/AAAAAAAAR3U/_HbNMTCOb4w/s512/IMG_9946.JPG

Kurnau helped. He put the cookies to the cookie sheet.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-plgB-UcJ5qs/UJVtIfeLhDI/AAAAAAAAR88/sU5Wr0dIWbE/s512/IMG_9953.JPG

Mmmmmm... it smells so good already!  :p

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-VIi4yhfo5sE/UJVWDEMPZ4I/AAAAAAAAR3c/FIYd1i1Ll3g/s512/IMG_9956.JPG

Cookies are ready! Yummy!!! 

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Y0_YtP9v85I/UJVWqM0iCJI/AAAAAAAAR5g/xxMTZXqfHtI/s512/IMG_9965.JPG

Now it's time to enjoy!  :p

Jyväskylä, Finland - 5th November 2012

By: mmm105

Hi!

I read today's local newspaper named Keskisuomalainen today.
Finnish is nice language, but very difficult to learn. But my hostmommy helped me to read the newspaper. :)

Here's the front page:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-pOXLbl2dzhk/UJgX4Vts2AI/AAAAAAAASPs/wLaYho91jns/s512/IMG_9993.JPG

There was a big article about what happened last Saturday in Jyväskylä. A huge amount of water were wasted, because the watertower crashed down suddenly. Many people had to be some times without running water in their homes. The article tried to tell what really had happened. This was one big news here. (it was lucky, that I was in Ilomantsi last weekend).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-7uA5b-5t9TU/UJgX5HBtwQI/AAAAAAAASQE/REi8KyG9QB4/s512/IMG_9999.JPG

And then there was some advertisements.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-mJ4g8m4LyGU/UJgX2CjtPqI/AAAAAAAASPc/iwPDCNFHeek/s512/IMG_0005.JPG

Hi hii, these speaking bubbles look so funny, don't you think so?

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wC3eOcVLWak/UJgX2KVf6uI/AAAAAAAASPg/PgI0j9ms7tI/s512/IMG_0010.JPG

Well... Ice hockey (jääkiekko in Finnish) is very popular sport in Finland. And offcourse there's at least one article of it in the newspaper.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-8U14vCOBhpM/UJgX1s0AeNI/AAAAAAAASPY/R7eQ7W9MlTA/s512/IMG_0015.JPG

I liked reading comics. They were so funny! :D

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wOPEtZZ77f4/UJgX3PhjEQI/AAAAAAAASPw/FSDA19G4Xrw/s512/IMG_0020.JPG

And offcourse I watched very carefully the weather forecast.  ;)
It looks quite nice. Maybe we could go outside in the next following days...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-v_069ftuQDI/UJgX3wTo-3I/AAAAAAAASPo/Gnsv9CyBx1E/s512/IMG_0025.JPG

Hei! Hello!

Today was nice weather outside, so I went there for little walk and to have some fresh air. :)
I went to place called Harju (Jyväskylä Ridge). It's like a hill just next to city center.

As you can see from the pictures, there's not snow anymore.
All snow has melted away. Well, it's not a surprise, because it was the first snow.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-s0VkcIHAUCw/UKZbsz7EMRI/AAAAAAAAScU/P9DgJRY6GOw/s512/IMG_0136.JPG

These stone stairs of Harju is very long...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-d23mOdOhz4c/UKZbs9JevsI/AAAAAAAAScQ/7QSRtFv0WWA/s512/IMG_0145.JPG

There's city center down there.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-akF7RryZryc/UKZbs7Y146I/AAAAAAAAScM/HXnkTNxO-iw/s512/IMG_0144.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9wW_718U1-U/UKZbtwstPmI/AAAAAAAASck/x8x796FqC0s/s512/IMG_0156.JPG

This building is called Vesilinna. It's located in Harju.
And there's the viewing tower in the building, too. I'm going there. :)

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-kRkN1Jt0b_c/UKZbvAG-5OI/AAAAAAAASc8/QnxMkphfmjo/s512/IMG_0184.JPG

Look, so nice views!!!  :)

Hello!

I was walking outside today, because it was really nice weather (-4 degrees Celcius, snowing very light).
BUT, there was quite dark already outside, even thought it was only afternoon!  :o

Hostmommy told me about kaamos (the Polar night).
It's the time of the year when the sun doesn't rise at all within few months!!!
Can you believe it, the sun is completely below the horizon so long time in Lapland in winter?  :o  :o  :o
Luckily, this happens only Lapland, inside the polar circles.
But the effects can be seen here in Central Finland, too. In winter light-time during days are only some hours per day, and the most of time is dark...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-YHUH6MYhtkw/ULZMX6WO_QI/AAAAAAAASqs/6WlCzNbhfyo/s544/IMG_0280.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vKXL1mnU3s4/ULZMX9jxEwI/AAAAAAAASqw/XYfB3OPIg7o/s544/IMG_0286.JPG

Look!!! There's some kids playing ice hockey!  :D
Ice hockey (jääkiekko in Finnish) is very popular hobby in Finland.
Very very popular!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-REpv7hkEhu8/ULZMXn2r-oI/AAAAAAAASq0/bMhWvVW6Tqo/s544/IMG_0291.JPG

Then I continued walking, and I arrived in Harju. I have been in Harju earlier, too, but not in dark time. Look, there's so beautiful lights there!  B)

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-eqLjQBYevEo/ULZMYx1nMmI/AAAAAAAASrA/2J8HOZKcZcU/s512/IMG_0301.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-WFUpvxVrhCw/ULZMZG--5mI/AAAAAAAASrQ/5inZp0DEpnU/s512/IMG_0309.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Bq9QH3xyCzc/ULZMZktUr7I/AAAAAAAASrM/98zU4tAMgp8/s544/IMG_0313.JPG

And here is the long stone steps of Harju Ridge. There's city center down there.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3WgVRIT2GFE/ULZMZ_xaiCI/AAAAAAAASrY/oGMPVqx9cJE/s544/IMG_0329.JPG

I think this tree looks little spooky and scary!!! BOOOO!!!  :cyclops: hihi

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-omWDCNHZ1vI/ULZMap3S2WI/AAAAAAAASrw/VMH-_sFW6y4/s512/IMG_0339.JPG

And here are we all toys (little Sunny, Kurnau, Nyankororin, me and Phog). We are very near of the city center.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-iOD7ITe1MR0/ULZMas-SQSI/AAAAAAAASrs/D8gycPXe0ro/s544/IMG_0342.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Oku9nPsl7YM/ULZMamy9wZI/AAAAAAAASr0/aOW-DMTaS34/s544/IMG_0343.JPG

Then I saw something really nice! A Christmas tree!!!  :p 
Oooooh, it's so big! But really beautiful with all those lights and a star :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qW3ByFKOKa0/ULZMcH6APnI/AAAAAAAASsI/dqgxAbr1GQE/s512/IMG_0347.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-TIw08G8pRYY/ULZMcB2pP5I/AAAAAAAASr8/etaNmT_b6d4/s512/IMG_0353.JPG

Now I'm in the city center. I'm going to see some Christmas lights...  :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-uTM1nbwdzpA/ULZMcb9BJUI/AAAAAAAASsM/6A3HUJ84rS0/s544/IMG_0356.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-nxlwtn9ec6c/ULZMc8BG7KI/AAAAAAAASsU/s5S8WBv1MCQ/s544/IMG_0359.JPG

Beautiful!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-YdE2ym84tU8/ULZMdTaq8xI/AAAAAAAASsY/yVXPSNA9Vrg/s544/IMG_0360.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Jr3ig8pmZvg/ULZMdihUTQI/AAAAAAAASsc/mk5rn1aD6Ck/s512/IMG_0365.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-9Ft2euYfBR8/ULZMeIW1I5I/AAAAAAAASsw/eZ0j4SniepA/s544/IMG_0368.JPG

This big star is the most beautiful Christmas light I have seen here!
Look, there's also a star on the ground... or it looks like a star. Hostmommy told me, that “the star” on the ground is a big compass!!!  :o
Yeah, when I looked it more carefully, I saw there's a biggest arrow to show the North. Cool!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-vBHgSm58qMo/ULZMeeDpifI/AAAAAAAASs4/gq6BHIIzieY/s512/IMG_0379.JPG

I saw many interesting things today. :)

I went outside with other toys (Kurnau, little Sunny, Nyankororin, Phog, Misslucy). My plan was go there to play with the snow, but I couldn't be there long time, only some minutes. It was freezing!

But mommy, the cold weather makes the nature looks so beautiful!
Well, you will underestand what I mean when you look the pictures.
Enjoy! :)

Love,
Bussi

Jyväskylä, Finland - 6th December 2012

By: mmm105

Hello!

Today is the independence day of Finland.
It's a national public holiday held on 6th December to celebrate Finland's declaration of independence from Soviet Russia. Finland's independence started in 1917.

Now I'm going to show you how we celebrate this day. Look the pictures!

I went outside and hold the flag of Finland.

In the evening, we watched the TV show about the Presidential Independence Day Reception from the Presidential Palace. This event is Linnanjuhlat in Finnish. Famous or well-known Finns are there, dance, small talk, little snacks...etc.
