Raitamäenpolku, Vartiokylä, 11:10
The weather is hot and I am out for a walk. I have walked down Kivinportinitie, along Itäväylä, and through the tunnel by the bus stop.
To my surprise I can see a missing house. Or rather, I can’t see it. Before we went to Pellinki there was an old wooden house where there is now only a huge crater and a bulldozer. Another large land has obviously been divided into two so that one half can be sold and a new house built there. No doubt they got the idea from the people opposite, who did the same thing a few years ago.
After lunch we will go to see Irma’s father by bus, metro and tram. Irma will not be used to this.
Father visited, we will eventually end up getting off a tram in the centre, just outside Sokos. Inevitably we will end up inside Sokos, where bargains will be purchased.
