only in Finland

So picture this....It is 11.00pm. I just got into bed. I'm about to doze off and then I hear the distinctive sounds of...a whipper snipper. Soon after, I catch the smell of cut grass wafting into my room. Yes folks, the gardener at the station is still doing the lawn close to midnight (probably because it is light outside). Everything (and everyone) seems to be working on a different time schedule here to take full advantage of the light, from the birds singing late into the night to the gardener intent on keeping the long grass trimmed.

Hmmm, a problem I have never considered. What about the poor birdies only getting a few hours sleep each night.

Different customs for different environments.

Andrew: I don't know about the birds but I think I am over nightingales and cuckoos.

Victor: Even the Finns were complaining this morning.
