id12447_1.jpgSo it seems that my decision to travel north to Inari this week may have been an error. The waters of the Ivalo river have broken all records for current and water level, and are threatening to close the main highway south, leaving us stranded here. On my birthday. :( After missing what sounded like a rather exciting Champions League final, because they don't even have Nelonen (Channel Four) up here, this is just too much. I just hope the river has peaked and we can get the heck out of here tomorrow. Wish us luck!
