This summer all our further-away gigs were concentrated to the east of the country.
And some yellow widow to go along.
from my post about the trip, we got to stay at the art nouveau hotel downtown, that I remember admiring in my childhood.
And we got to take that swim on our way home instead, when stopping by my grandmother's cabin.
We stayed in one of these traditional Carelian timber lodges.
(On a side note I can add that during the trip I stuffed myself with local treats like pirogs and barley bread and so called "home ale" which made me look like I was four months pregnant in the end.)
Jeena's pre-show preparations.
Leaving back home for another gig we had in Helsinki the next day. One of my "Skoda -ads" again... It really is amazing how much we manage to fit in this car.
The next week it was time to make another seven hours drive, this time to Iisalmi, performing with the same set up at yet another motorcycle event. (The theme for this summer - motorcycles and going east!)
Well, we did have an indoors one as well. In -of course- a timber lodge.
And then it was, once again, showtime!
