28.8.2009 Having a sauna with Prime Minister

Prime Minister and us
Prime Minister Vanhanen
After summiting Everest we received a message from Prime Minister Vanhanen. He invited us to have a sauna in Kesäranta, the official residence of Prime Minister of Finland. The summer was spent recovering from the trip and enjoying Finnish summer with families and friends.

At the end of August we had the appointment for the sauna. Everyone was excited when arriving in Kesäranta. After welcome words was the time for sauna. The "löyly" was very good and after a refreshing swim it was nice to sit at the terrace and discuss about mountaineering and other interesting topics.

During the visit we provided Prime MInister with a Everest certificate and Halti fleece that will be used a lot in Lapland hills.

Everything is still fine.
