Picture of the day

September 10, 2012

Last weekend I was up in Kuopio to visit with my in-laws. Despite the inclement weather on Saturday we paid a visit to the 20th annual Kalaryssäys – the Kuopio Fish Festival – the brainchild of the Mr.’s father who is the district fisheries officer for Kuopio. The damp weather didn’t do anything to stop the scads of visitors to the harbour area in downtown Kuopio. The festival was a complete assault on the senses with the smell of cooked fish, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods and burning wood. We even got a big salmon fillet from this fellow (pictured) who hollered “Nammy, nammy, nammy <something else in Finnish>…” as he doused the fish in a healthy serving of congnac.

Nummy indeed… 🙂
