My quest to get to know The Finns got me to Ukkaholla today where the World Championship Tournament of Swamp Soccer takes place.
About 2000 players of both genders, hailing from nine different countries, play over a thousand matches in a swamp area so remote you have trouble getting connected to the world.
Live music, dress ups, a sauna in a tent and a pond to clean yourself and obviously loads of half litres of Karjala beer guarantee what must be one of Finland’s most enjoyable open air parties.
