Kuopio – Finland – 2014

Another fieldwork done in the Nordics. My first real trip to Finland, after just a few border crossings along roadtrips between Sweden and Norway. What an experience, as we drove from Stockholm, took the ferry over to Turku and drove up to Kuopio and Siilinjärvi. In Siilinjärvi we worked in a mine for 7 days, it was just an adventure to be allowed to drive an arctic truck between heavy loaders inside europe’s largest open pit mine. We went for a city walk in Kuopio town, and I flew home via Helsinki. It’s not the most exciting country in the world, but they sure have the coolest language! 😉
