This post is for all the young ones and those who are still young at heart.
We paid Santa Clause a visit today. He was thrilled to have visitors from so far. We were not allowed to take any photographs but his official photographer took a beautiful one of us.
Five of you will receive mail from him, and one will receive a letter from him before Christmas.
Here is a photograph of him holding the names of the first two who reacted first of the blog post last night.
While there I went to see whether my sticker of last year survived the harsh winter of last year when the temperature drop as low as -25 to -30 degrees centigrade. Unfortunately it didn’t survive. I put another sticker there. One doesn’t stop planting trees because a fire could destroy it, not so?
Before we went to Santa Claus we had a quick coffee in Rovaniemi. There I took a photograph of two candles and in this case I especially dedicated it to another biker family, the Louw’s, who has been struck by cancer. Gerda, we pray for your husband for a full recovery.
And the last photograph is for … I don’t know. For Finland and the wonderful Finnish people, my German friends, for in Egypt and Sudan, and all those in faraway South Africa. The same moon shines over you tonight.
