Winter landscape in Niinikumpu / 6

Empty house (Niinikumpu, Kitee – Finland)

People are moving to towns. In the countryside the population falls. There are several houses which are now empty along the 6km look I have been walking. I imagine that years ago a large family might have lived here. They might have sat together in the living/dining rooms during the long winter nights. Talking or listening to a radio and the news coming from Helsinki about the rest of the country and far away unknown countries.
