Miss Piggy.

Tohmajärven perinteisten Potsipäivien kunniaksi puin ylleni ainoan possunpunaisen 50-luvun 
mekkoni, mustalla tyllialushameella ja asusteilla. Jottei asuni olisi ollut liian juhlallinen, pistin 
kaulaani punaisen huivin - mustaa huivia kun ei mukaan sattunut. Muillakin näytti markkinoilla
olevan possujuhlaan sopivaa pinkkiä yllä.

(Due to Tohmajärvi's traditional Potsipäivät I put on my only 50's piggy pink
dress, with black petticoat and accessories. So that my outfit would not be too formal,
I wore a red scarf too - I didn't have a black one with me. Other people seemed to wear a lot of
pink too at the market square, 'cause after all "Potsi" means "a pig".)

Red dotty scarf a gift from my mom

Kaunis päivä on ollut, illalla vielä tanssimaan Ravintola Wäkään.
Oltais muuten lähdetty lavatansseille Janne Hurmeen tahdittamana, mutta 15 euron
liput tuntuivat liian kalliilta meille. Siispä Wäkä kutsuu jälleen, kuten eilisiltanakin.. :)

(It has been a lovely day, we'll head later to Restaurant Wäkä, to dance. Of course waltzing at the 
local dance pavilion would sound beautiful, but 15 euros is too much for us to pay for the ticket right
 now. Luckily there's always lovely Wäkä calling for us, like yesterday evening.. :)
