I’m writing this from a school dorm at Toivonlinna, a Seventh-day Adventist school in Finland. I’m one of a number of chaperones for a high school choir giving concerts in Scandinavia. We gave a concert at the school this morning (and I really do mean “we”, since the chaperones got drafted to sing also). Our concert yesterday in Turku went well enough that the choir went back up to sing an encore. Iceland was our first stop, and despite its name, it was warmer than Finland is now. Even as I type, it is snowing.
The next stop on our tour is Sweden. We’ll be taking an overnight ferry there from Finland (assuming the weather cooperates) after lunch, a cathedral tour, and some shopping.
