The Fencing Match
I was invited along to a fencing match in Finland today and here are a few from the morning. The fencing club has its home in bomb shelters under a low rise in the land to the south of the city of Jyvaskyla. These are not, by the way, remnants of the cold war but fully functional and well maintained bunkers that the citizens are expected to use in an 'emergency'. Why they are so high nobody seemed to know but they are not wasted space in this case for they are fitted out as an underground recreation centre for the casual use by the very same citizens in these fortunately less threatening times.
