Oh vacation time was great this year! I was in Finland for the Midsummer's Festival (longest day of the year) and spent some time with the family in the woods at our place there. Here are some photos of the week:

My mother-in-law, me and my kids. The bonfire in the back is a traditional thing for midsummers which you light up at midnight. Midnight? Of course ... it is Finland ... the land of the midnight sun!

Oh nice! The view from the second floor balcony of my place - looking out on the lake. The lake is 6 miles long and surrounded by forest. The lake has a funny name - Humalajarvi ... which translates as “Drunken Lake” ... hehe.

Here is my wife Tuija (on the left) with her friend Satu getting ready for a night on the town.

You just never know where you're going to find someone . . . I ran into Steve H. a while back and inquired of your whereabouts. He said possibly still WA, so I decided to investigate on my own. And, wala, you're all over the web, doing web stuff. I just had to get in touch, because I still have a letter you wrote me after I left Russia that said, you swear, even if in 20 years I think of you — I should get in touch. Can you believe it's been over 10 years ago?

Anyway, I saw a picture of Tuija and your two kids on this site — it's wonderful. I bet you're a phenomenal dad. I would love to hear back from you and to catch up in more detail . . . for now, just touching base, saying hi, hoping you and yours are well. Give my best to Tuija if she remembers!

Take care and hope to hear from you.
