Overview - Looking down on Jyväskylä from the Observation Tower.


Landmark - It took a while, but I finally found a ski jump.


Russian Tech - John Clute tries to get to grips with Irma's Lada.


Beautiful Design - Finnish buildings always seem to look good. This is a small tourist attraction called Kamana in the town of Keuruu. It contains an art museum, the local tourist office and a nice restaurant where Irma and I stopped for a coffee on our way to Tampere.


Windmill - No, it is not for electricity generation, nor for grinding wheat. This windmill was originally designed for raising water from a well.


Train - Well I couldn't go all that way to Finland without finding some trains to photograph for Kevin, could I?


Train Inards - A nice idea, having the boiler open for kids to see how a steam engine works.


Boys of All Ages - Sadly this is an American toy. It says Rio Grande Railway.
