Jakari, Porvoo, Finland - 31st May 2009

By: Delenna

We visited the childhood surroundings of my host. Jakari is a small village (approx. 300 inhabitants) about 15km from Porvoo centrum. Lots of nice nature. That's about it  :rolleyes: They did have a shop, gas station, post office, dairy/barn (that was way back) and umm... a schoold untill now. My host went to that elementary school shown in the 4th photo. She loved it and so did many people who moved here to get their kids into the small school (last year 34 pupils in grades 1-6). But the city officials decided to shut it down to save money. Many don't understand how it saves money as the city has to pay for school transfers now. There was also lots of other mysterious stuff and  promise braking but I don't remember it all, my host was too frustrated to be speaking clearly...

There's still a sports field and a house owned by the local Youth Association where they have dance, disco, markets etc. They also rent it, my host held her dad a suprise 70 years birthdayparty there with her siblings! They do have a manor there too, but that's in private use (3rd last pic).
