Now been in Joensuu for a couple of days. My supervisor has threatened to put me in a cage if I don't work hard. A cage where I would have to earn my sleep and meals by writing X numbers of pages. So I have been working long hours and first article needs to be submitted on Monday and second on Friday next week... I am planning to move to an appartment in the beginning of February (still trying to find a good option) but at the moment staying at the home of my supervisor. This morning I woke up and there was a thick layer of snow that had fallen during the night. Removing the snow from the yard was a sweaty job and now feeling very warm despite the winter coldness.

On my way to joensuu I stopped in Helsinki for couple of hours and had a long walk with Pasi E and then Pasi S came and joined us for lunch. The drive to Joensuu took forever as the speed limit was mostly 80kmph and speed cameras every second kilometer. Crazy!
