Remarks

Rest day in Tampere after three stages in Finland. The morning spent at the campsite, in the afternoon a sightseeing trip into town. First up on the tower on Pyynikki-mountain, then through the  city center and along the Tammerkoski Falls to the north. Visited two museums in Vapriikki center. After a short look at the cathedral a trip to the rock singer Juice Leskinen's grave at Kalevankangas Cemetery. Saw the church in Kaleva from the outside and into the center again for dinner, a stop at a café and a beer in a pub-ship in the harbour. Then home to the campsite. I started to feel pain form a shin splints in my left leg.
