Today dry weather with sunny spells, but still very cool with an ice cold northerly wind.
No cycling today! I made a tour of the city on foot.
The most extraordinary day of the whole trip: No cycling at all, but rest day in Rovaniemi. After my breakfast at the camp site, where my tent is pitched right on the Kemijoki river bank I had a guest: Raija arrived by train and taxi. First I showed her my tent, where we warmed one another in the cold Finnish summer! That done we went for a walk into town. There we visited the architecturally exciting museum Arktikum, which tells about life beyond the polar circle. The exhibition is very traditional. Lunch and coffee in the museum restaurant. Afterwards we walk through the city centre to the railway station, where Raija boards a train home and I enjoy som city life: At a computer in a hotel and in a beer bar with yet more contact to the local population. Waddled 'home' to my tent across the impressing Jatkankynttilä bridge.
