Roaming. Route Diversion.

From the bus, this red whale was one of the first things I saw in Tammisaari, or Ekenäs for Swedish speakers. I shouldn't have seen it from a bus, but the affable Amper driver insisted on navigating the narrow streets of the old town instead of sending this tourist in on foot from the not so distant bus terminal. Our genial driver pointed out sights along the way, proffered a brief history of the town and suggested places to visit and things to see, for example, treehouses, which were really old wooden houses. Nevertheless, Tammisaari was a treat boosted by the friendliness of the gregarious bus driver.
