The Midsummer is the second biggest festive time for Finns. Everyone goes to the countryside to enjoy bonfires, alcohol, good food, swimming and mosquitoes. Which means that usually all the cities are quiet and empty. It is also traditional that in midsummer the weather is cold, cloudy and rainy (like now) and the trains are fully booked and not working on the schedule (like now). But I have packed, I have booked my train ticket last week and now I'm off for a while again.

This photo is just what midsummer is suppose to be: warm, sunny and with someone on a little towel in swimsuits (like my grandparents in the 60's).
