Jyväskylä, Finland - 19th July 2012

By: mmm105

Hello!

I visited in the natural park of Jyväskylä.
It's so cool forest area just next to the river Tourujoki. It's a nature conservation area in the middle of Jyväskylä.

At first, we need to go down to the long wooden old stairs. It was exiting!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-U6bLVT0JUWg/UAl4_7hpsRI/AAAAAAAAO9I/H0OfEIL51wg/s640/065.JPG

Look, how beautiful nature there is!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KE_GnBi6HFI/UAl5EX54XSI/AAAAAAAAO9s/Pwd0y1R1Ob4/s640/071.JPG

Can you see those weird things in the tree? They are "kääpä" in Finnish, they are some kind of mushrooms growing in old trees. How cool!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-eKRXLbHQV-I/UAl5VdeA07I/AAAAAAAAO_8/TZR9gyRt7Bg/s512/094.JPG

It's time to have a little brake, and just relax. :)

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-kSQwRw2KrfU/UAl5WSMqcOI/AAAAAAAAO_4/YAOcUkl07qE/s640/097.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XRPm8LihZbk/UAl5VqiDnzI/AAAAAAAAO_0/PcdFVy-sPzI/s640/096.JPG

Then it's time to walk forward.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LEtKAWXm5rQ/UAl5YyrRijI/AAAAAAAAPAY/i_9h8zA_mVg/s640/099.JPG

We walk on the "pitkospuut", the wooden path on the ground. There must be this wooden path, because the ground is so wet.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-XtJmlaSGF38/UAl5jiZx8rI/AAAAAAAAPBw/iwqp6CRxTMA/s512/111.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-V7pS1MagEho/UAl5kiGGUHI/AAAAAAAAPBk/j_TbBcXAkPk/s640/112.JPG

It was a nice place, this small natural park! :)

Love,
Lina

Hei äiti! Hello mommy!

Today I went to the grocery store to buy some food.
ToyVoyager Phog was there, too. Together we walked through the big shop,
and it was like an adventure! A nice adventure! :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-desqW2zTqRY/UAqC8wr-CfI/AAAAAAAAPEE/KW-g4AJzi7w/s640/024.jpg

Mommy, smile! :D

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-eoKGiFEvZJU/UAqC2qJuYTI/AAAAAAAAPCw/rhxoZF5kJAI/s640/013.jpg

There's two flags of Finland.
The blue colour symbolised the blue sky,
the white colour symbolised the white snow,
and the shape of cross symbolised Scandinavia.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-pTEed9vov2w/UAqC4P-Ye-I/AAAAAAAAPDE/IbPDzhAHyC0/s510/014.jpg

Hostmom bought some yarns to her hobby: making amigurumis :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-PPm6pmfm1Mc/UAqC2jcr5pI/AAAAAAAAPC4/Zu_-ri7VI4I/s640/011.jpg

We met a green bird, but he was boring, because he didn't say anything. He was quiet.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-L5ye943NVKg/UAqC292Ap0I/AAAAAAAAPC0/Hh036tsnOMQ/s640/012.jpg

Then it's time to bought some food. :)
First, some bananas (a banana = banaani)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-yNFoWMp3LBY/UAqC5U9Ci5I/AAAAAAAAPDU/zuRRjWpvhQ8/s640/017.jpg

...and oranges (an orange = appelsiini)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QhBFqShPpNk/UAqC4UyjJsI/AAAAAAAAPDI/fm4fAsOfwqs/s640/015.jpg

strawberries (a strawberry = mansikka), and raspberries (a raspberry = vadelma)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-uUOKFqWVV-Y/UAqC4-Z0-EI/AAAAAAAAPDQ/R_YVG2y3-aU/s640/016.jpg

eggs (an egg = kananmuna)
By the way, mommy, don't be worry about the hens up there, they are not real hens.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-19Q8TQ_alRM/UAqC53EnLJI/AAAAAAAAPDc/G2ufetTBmYQ/s640/018.jpg

fish (a fish = kala)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lq9mBGGCff4/UAqC68gpxTI/AAAAAAAAPDs/kCMaDVGkc-4/s640/019.jpg

milk (maito)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-u3M8tAudI_k/UAqC7cOwcaI/AAAAAAAAPD0/bglPJEovTO4/s640/020.jpg

Look, mommy, there's so nice pictures on the milk packet!
A cow riding a bike, and a flying cow!!!  :D

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/--6ubE5SgVn8/UAqC7FmP_sI/AAAAAAAAPDw/nEc8wBO2ssU/s640/021.jpg

These are carelian pies (karjalanpiirakka). They are typical Finnish food. Maybe someday I can taste it, and tell you more about it...

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-HKDCsOM9rvY/UAqC8YPSRUI/AAAAAAAAPEI/9WUiSwgl-F0/s640/022.jpg

And there's the most popular rye bread in Finland.
(a rye bread = ruisleipä)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MOFhDmKlqVM/UAqC9O7YOeI/AAAAAAAAPEM/xyLWLObzj-w/s640/023.jpg

Then it's time to go back 'home'. We sat in the car, while hostmom was driving. :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/--n5eGctKsyg/UAqC-4GGaZI/AAAAAAAAPEg/PA93jfeHSlk/s512/025.jpg

Hi mommy!

Today I visited in the Craft Museum of Finland.

Due to water damage, there were only small exhibitions of different things.
They all were very colourful and nice exhibitions! :)
Just look by yourself, mommy... I hope you can feel the atmosphere through these photos.

There's some Karelian national costumes.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0OaYv6e4wYE/UAqDMl5Ok2I/AAAAAAAAPFo/uW4Oo6sWy1o/s640/007.JPG

And there's very old ski supplies.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-aLy7X3qjiD0/UAqDP_JEwfI/AAAAAAAAPGk/gQhk6P3rtL0/s512/015.JPG

This is very colourful art, isn't it?

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lt1FfA8keVA/UAqDd1LCfsI/AAAAAAAAPJ0/1DrFEKWNeKo/s640/047.JPG

This one is so colourful, too.
Do you think there's all the colours of the rainbow?
Well, they are different coloured coat hangers. It looks nice! :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-zci-okMj1Bs/UAqDcVGY3JI/AAAAAAAAPJs/TL4XpcKp0Zk/s640/044.JPG

Look mommy! I met my cousin there! :) She told me, that she is a handmade sheep.

Hello!

I had very exiting adventure last night!
Kurnau had an idea. He told us that hostmom is a nurse in profession,
and we might have a chance to visit her workplace.
So, all we tiny sized toys climbed into hostmom's bag, and we waited...
We were hiding in the bag. We would surprise hostmom in her workplace, hihii... ;)

Hostmom had a night shift, so our toys very important task to do was
keep a company to her and helped her to stay awake hole night long.

In the hospital we met some new friends: mascots of the hostmom's workplace.
We toys had so much fun together!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pEuSexiHcpo/UAqC-h944eI/AAAAAAAAPEc/qMQajbvwZK0/s640/026.jpg

This place was really exiting! There were lots of medicines in that room!!!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VBxNAhpMoO0/UAqC--CpTWI/AAAAAAAAPEk/GPb8V0FeMkY/s640/027.jpg

We found a stethoscope, and we listened our sounds of hearts. It was fun!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-OVAwI5TeiZA/UAqDACy3d3I/AAAAAAAAPE4/Hp4olto9LAg/s640/028.jpg

Then we drove the hallways with a wheelchaire. :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-DVe4YVbPnUU/UAqDAHNWyII/AAAAAAAAPE0/JYkXCR2oSM4/s500/029.jpg

Now I'm tired... ZZZzzz  zzZZZ  zz ZZZZZ ZZZzzzz

Hello!

I read today a newspaper. It was fun, because everything has written in this weird language, Finnish. All writings in the newspaper looked so strange, very different than I'm used to at home.

Love,

Hi mom!

I was walking outside today.
I wanted to see, what kind of city this is. And I liked it! :)

In this town, Jyväskylä, there's living about 132 000 people.
And guess what? In this summer it's the 175th birthday of this town. :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-yQPJpWkWrTU/UBFzFJjOFwI/AAAAAAAAPkM/W7dsC0leoFc/s640/IMG_8225.JPG

I visited in a place called "kirkkopuisto" (a church park).
There I saw this beautiful church just in the middle of the park
surrounded by green grass, trees and beautiful flowers.
The church has buildt in 1880, and the architecht was L. I. Linqvist.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rZL5NiPJ2Og/UBFyoNSVTSI/AAAAAAAAPdw/NjQ0nslV_-A/s640/011.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-lgZcnrNw_tk/UBFy4v8GL-I/AAAAAAAAPhQ/mdWaQPpJqQY/s640/042.JPG

In the church park, there's a statue of Minna Canth (1844-1897).
She was a famous Finnish writer and social activist.
Her works addresses issues of women's rights.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-tcL5l0_JOZA/UBFz3mYKQYI/AAAAAAAAPuM/JBq9TI8_wq4/s512/IMG_8311.JPG

There's another nice statue. :)

Hello mommy!

Today Kurnau wanted to show me something.
He said the place where we will go is great. He was so mysterious...  :thinking:
So, we went outside and started to walk.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-poMgC9VDsQI/UBVSXi7CLWI/AAAAAAAAQLU/3-FxGMQMNqM/s640/123.JPG

Kurnau said this place is called Harju. It's like a small hill just next to city center. And there's such a great and long stairs there.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-el0_WQdaaug/UBQ0T9Jhf4I/AAAAAAAAP00/5JRA5oFj3vo/s512/017.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-yi54MxIDbe8/UBVRVCMr0xI/AAAAAAAAQBU/xHOyC3jw1lI/s512/029.JPG

We all climbed up these long stairs.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-acn1ljcGeZ4/UBQ0Vm6LCvI/AAAAAAAAP1I/xRm3qFcwiCk/s512/031.JPG

Up there is the building called Vesilinna.
I'm so exited, because Kurnau said we are going to up in this high tower to see great views!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-054r7l_1yTc/UBVRZ4-vVxI/AAAAAAAAQB8/DUC4F7LZzJY/s512/037.JPG

There's the city center. And the lake in the picture is named Jyväsjärvi.
Look, the lake is so close to city center!!!
And by the way, did you know that there's about 188 000 lakes in total in Finland? Lots of lakes, isn't it? So cool!  B)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-BXNSyODL1FI/UBVUXhri_qI/AAAAAAAAQRY/S-Qbx7ZIyRc/s640/056.JPG

There's the sport stadium of Harju.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-jduIeOZVYys/UBVUuIu3ivI/AAAAAAAAQR4/WbwBF8ypB70/s640/044.JPG

And there's the view to the direction where hostmom is living.
She is living just next to the lake. :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ohQQ-DQ234I/UBVRvZRAmFI/AAAAAAAAQE8/smGHgFKT1lM/s640/067.JPG

On the downstairs of the building Vesilinna, there's the Natural History Museum (Keski-Suomen luontomuseo). We visited there.

There's hirvi (a moose). It's the biggest animal living in Finland.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-RXo_eSnju6A/UBVR8u__GoI/AAAAAAAAQHQ/grpiRUZ-lQ8/s617/084.JPG

There's joutsen (a swan). It's the national bird of Finland.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lVwB1tGW6go/UBVR642qF7I/AAAAAAAAQGs/ZWufGFkI81k/s627/081.JPG

And there's susi (a wolf).

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KeeOrbAl80w/UBVT6cYEWyI/AAAAAAAAQRA/PtI8_sL5ryQ/s640/114.JPG

It was such a great place to visit! :)

Love,
Lina

Hello mom!

I enjoyed the sunshine today.  B)

I went to see the lake just next to hostmom's home. I think she is so lucky to live in this beautiful surroundings: lots of trees and a lake just next to her home.

It's so Finnish thing: there's so much forests and lakes in nature of Finland.

Korpilahti, Finland - 1st August 2012

By: mmm105

Hello mom!

I visited in a new place today: Korpilahti.
It's located very near of Jyväskylä.

I was there, because there was a postcrossing meeting, and it's one of hostmom's hobby.
I had such a great time in the meeting, and I met new ToyVoyagers there!
Another host (Fendi) was there, too, and offcourse with all her toys
and toy-guests (PieksiHH, Nils and Kitsune).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wSiYewstscM/UBvpNo6UdgI/AAAAAAAAQZA/Fw4ntMzSoq4/s553/004.JPG

We all toys have really fun time together! :D
When hostmom and other humans there wrote postcards,
we toys were eating their snacks, hih.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-YBw0M7GC-FE/UBrcTiWVrqI/AAAAAAAAQU4/5P4y0GLd7R8/s640/006.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-88ufGGrA4SI/UBvpN5YnJjI/AAAAAAAAQZE/dUHF00QvcJk/s586/007.JPG

After eating we got thirsty, so we made coffee.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-CEROJtRvKxg/UBvqEqFyP7I/AAAAAAAAQeQ/1fD-cif_ZAA/s640/012.JPG

And then we played hide and seek! But it didn't go so well,
because the most of us was hiding under the glass.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-sTyxb6JsZoQ/UBvqMXTuBQI/AAAAAAAAQek/3ISyBNTMR64/s640/016.JPG

After eating and playing I wrote a postcard. :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Wd0Bn1BDA4Q/UBvpYwXNJUI/AAAAAAAAQgk/tMYQ8V1HDWo/s613/024.JPG

Here are only some of the postcards what postcrossers wrote.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-AYAtFAjwv50/UBvpZXxYtYI/AAAAAAAAQao/bwm9hT7uJv0/s547/030.JPG

And here we toys are helping to mail those postcards. :)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Mbbgx1XMnp8/UBvqfVTt2xI/AAAAAAAAQe4/g0PH7oNZGrs/s640/032.JPG

It was really fun to join in the meeting!  B)

Love,
Lina
