On my way to our weekly lunch date on campus, I saw people melting the snow with big blow dryers. And a boat on the river trying to crash the ice. And huge flood lights creating artificial light.
But it wasn’t a desperate attempt of the Finns to fight the return of winter. Because I also saw sheep on the streets. And the Swedish queen walking into the cathedral.
It’s part of movie that is being shot in Turku at the moment. The film crew has been around for a few weeks now, shooting here and there (in the castle, the cathedral school, the cathedral itself…). Unfortunately it seems to be a rather cheesy movie. But I wish them good luck, especially with the snow-melting. Because while we were having lunch, it started snowing again and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop within the next hour…
Unfortunately the summer weather we now have here in Freiburg (and Zurich probably) with 25 deg C in the shadow will turn to much colder temperatures on the weekend to save you too big temperature differences:-))
