A real, oldfashioned letter, handwritten
and carrying first day edition stamps
featuring Finnish SAUNA. How cool can that be.
On Saturday night there was a 24-hours' swimming happening in Hanau:
Heinrich-Fischer-Bad was organizing a charity night for handicapped kids.
What a great idea. In the Finnish sauna there was a real finn doing the LÖYLY thing,
in German they call it Aufguss, in English there is NO specific word ...
(heittää ~ä) to throw water on the sauna stove's stones in order to increase the temperature of the sauna.
Water is the most important thing in the Finnish sauna.
The second important thing is, of course, beer.
Contact your local FINN for further details.
After the sauna your appetite just screams for these Finnish specialities:
Poroleipä, lohileipä and Karelian pies.
Little-Finnland is the shop where you can buy this stuff for your parties.
In the older days nobody used any cosmetics in the sauna,
cheapest traditional soap smelling of pinewood was used for washing everything,
including your hair.
Nowadays Finns do heavy business i.e. with peeling products.
If you need any of these in the pic, just contact me and I'll try to earn some provision.
HA HA HAA!
