Vanha valtatie. An Old Highway.

This way was the main route, Hämeenkankaantie,  from South to North in Finland. It has seen much, postmen riding with urgent letters, some kings in their sledges, wolves, poor people begging for food in guesthouses, soldiers marching, tax collectors and now sometimes a car.

We use this old highway, if not too much snow,  at Christmas Eve, when we drive to a nearby town to light candles to the graves of our parents.
