Wed to some mystery or other

Here is the third installment of photographs from traveling with the children. This is already from the return trip, back from Kajaani, towards the city of Jyväskylä where we spent the night.

Speaking of Jyväskylä, during the days of travel at night before going to sleep I was reading a novel about Jyväskylä, written in magical realism style, by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, titled Harjukaupungin salakäytävät (Atena, 2010). This book was rather good (and I wrote a review of it in Finnish, with photographs to go), and even better was to read it on the spot in Jyväskylä. The city seemed to have magical qualities...

(Posting title is from the poem The Reading Club by Patricia Goedicke.)
