Different Time Zone

Finland lies east of Sweden. When it was part of the Swedish Kingdom, from ancient times until 1809, it was sometimes called the eastern half of the realm. This means that the Sun rises and sets earlier in Finland than in Sweden every day. Finland has a time zone which is one hour earlier than Sweden. I am still not used to this, which is the reason this blog entry gets the wrong date. I wrote it late at night, just past midnight, Eastern European Time, which is the time zone of Finland.

Apart from this little mistake due to time zones, Finland is a land that I like. We have a nice hotel room in central Helsinki and a nice park for walks just across the street. I feel energized for the show tomorrow. It will be fun.
