Rafting on the border river

See the text in English

Sigurd Uusitalo is living outside Pajala in the little village Kengis. He tells a story about his grandfather who went to America. He built himself a raft and went down the river from Monio to Haparanda. When he came to Haparanda/Tornio he sold the logs and bought the ticket to the ship. He got many skills in America but when he came back to his home village no one valued that, they thought he was just a boaster.

The story is in Finnish (Meänkieli).
