Dear Friends,
Eija and I are on our way from Ghent to Brugges (before we fly home tomorrow) after a wonderful weekend in Ghent. Three concerts, a memorable surprise party with Forum members, meetups and city walks... Heartfelt thanks to all of you for your warm birthday wishes here on the Forum, and for the emails and SMSs - I will get back to you when back in Finland. Special thanks to Maarten & family for organizing everything in Ghent. Eija and I are so happy that we decided to take this birthday trip!
