28.02.11 – My sister Kim and friend Dave are visiting. They both arrived (without luggage!) yesterday. Dave’s flight was on schedule but for some reason his bags didn’t make it. Kim’s flight was definitely off schedule due to a Winter storm in Cleveland, Ohio from where she was departing. She got in late last night after too much time spent in Washington Dulles Airport trying to reroute after a missed connection and a 6 hour layover in London. She had the trans-Atlantic, thousand yard stare as she came out of customs but she was in good spirits and already laughing about her ordeal.
Our first full day was a bit painful because we drank a bit too much wine the night before :) We rallied though and met up with Jaana and the kids for a walk through Kaivopuisto Park and beyond. The weather was unbelievably beautiful. The temperatures were just below freezing and the sun was out without a cloud in the sky. We had a great time.
Not the best pictures but I’m sure I’ll have plenty more over the course of the next week so stay tuned ;)
