Local Church - Jyväskylä's church played host to the kantele concert. Note that unlike an English church the tower is over the entrance - the pupit is at the other end.


They Get Everywhere - Finland is not immune from the plague of McDonald's.


So Do They - Or the plague of Irish Pubs.


Funny Frenchmen - Auprès de ma Blonde entertain the crowds with their own brand of street music.


Wooden Houses - There is plenty of wood in Finland, so most older houses are built with it.


Lakeside - Like most Finnish towns, Jyväskylä is built on a lake.


Writers' House - This is where I stayed during the convention. It is a city building used by the Writers of Central Finland. Every year around 6,000 people visit it for various events.


Artists' House - Next door is a similar house for visiting artists. Sadly I never managed to get a look at the gallery.
