Arrived safely in Åland

Hi friends

I am at Mariehamn’s public library at a 15-minute-only Internet terminal where you have to stand up to use it. I have reserved an hour for tomorrow so I can write more. For now, I have arrived safely in the Åland Islands after a train trip from Helsinki to Turku and a ferry trip from Turku to Långnäs.

How did I get the 30 km from Långnäs to Mariehamn? Details tomorrow.

I checked out the post office before I came here and I have bought a pack of Åland stamps. Although Åland is an autonomous part of Finland, it issues its own stamps and has its own flag.

I will be on-line for one hour at 11-12 a.m., or 4-5 a.m. Toronto time.
