Family Week Day 3

Published: June 13, 2019

We are having fun and keeping buy here at Salolampi!

After a day of clouds and rain, the sun made a much-needed appearance on the third day of Family Week! We could finally spend the day outside eating jäätelö (ice cream) and swimming at the ranta (beach). The afternoon activities included bracelet making, board games, playing games outside, and discussions to practice speaking Finnish. In the evening, Panu Tuomikko, an actor, director, and co-founder of Kaikki kuvaa,  presented some of his original films to the villagers. We were enthralled!

Check out photos from today below!
