Niko had to get a stamp for his ID card and get some books from the university library so we took a day trip to Lappeenranta. We took care of the stamp and books and then had some lunch at the university cafeteria. After that we drove closer in to the city, as the university is actually on the outskirts, and just wandered around, visited a cafe and then headed back. It was warm outside as you can see on the sign. +4C (39F). On the way back we stopped by an ABC (gas station with market inside) and we considered going on the swingset outside but decided there was too much snow.
|i promise there are swings under the snow|
In side news I made a donation to Doctors Without Borders and just wanted to mention them and their site for anyone that isn't familiar with them and their work. I'm also posting a link on the side of the blog if I can figure out how.
