April 25–26: Southern Finland tour – Jyväskylä
Thence into Jyväskylä, which is smack in the middle of Finland's southern lobe and is thus considered to be in Central Finland.
Sunlight reflecting from our van onto the sign.
Ice + birches.
The Jyväskylä University campus, designed by Aalto, which we would check out the next day.
The city church.
We walked along a rather clinical pedestrian street to find dinner.
I think the place we ended up eating at was called Food. I had apple-flavored soda, maybe? The color was enticingly weird.
Twilight through the Omenahotelli window.
The next morning: a log train rolling through.
The Jyväskylä skyline from across Lake Päijänne.
An ominously dark factory.
