    Ah the Finns love their cars, especially old American iron. Next time in Helsinki take in a Summer Cruiser Night!

    Covid-19 and everything is closed - but not the roads and not the nature.

    This time we were visiting an interesting car museum and the nice city of Kuopio. Some very rare bikes and cars!

    And another trip - a huge strange stone called Kummakivi = Strange stone and a beatutiful Summer city Savonlinna.

    At the begin the road was very good

    [​IMG]
    Then it wasn't so good anymore - this pic doesn't tell the truth, hole and bumps and strikes made by rain were occasionally not that nice

    [​IMG]
    Then some walking trough the forest
    [​IMG]

    And then the Strange stone

    Yes, or Canada i suppose. Probably that's why some many Finns moved to Minnesota etc. in the past.
