Gold rush (2824)

We're in Tankavaara. There was a gold rush here in 1934. They didn't leave any wealth behind.

Still, we had a lovely, lovely ride from Norway into the Lakeland area of Finland. All countryside single carriageways, hills, trees and considerate drivers - and the odd stray reindeer.

Here's a nice picture for you of a thoughtful lady by a stylised lavvu* - part of the Sami parliament buildings back at our last stop in Karasjok.

 Parliamentary wistfulness

* Sami word for teepee
