|We, like almost everyone in
Finland, like to go to sauna. Before and after the gig, the sauna is one of the best
places to relax and collect thoughts.
On hangover (which is pretty rare in our case ...) sauna gives you a good kick back to real life, so sauna is a "survival kit".
Finnish sauna is the place of a social communication, without any erotic or sexual tension, even people are there just naked. That's how it should be.
In Finland, 1500 years ago, the sauna was
nothing more than a pile of rocks on the floor of the steam room. Hot embers from a fire
were spread over this pile until the rocks were hot. Ashes were removed, and water was
tossed upon them to produce steam ( "loyly" ).
"If sauna, tar and booze does not heal you, it'll be a death ahead"
Alko, a Finnish well of inspiration :-)
|What's that? Something to eat?
Haa, booze! That's what we try to avoid to the bitter end... and sometimes even success.
Booze makes your behaviour smooth and your breath fresh :-), but still, be careful with it!
