Stamp of the Day: Sauna

Leave it to the Finns to have a sauna stamp (or 'bastu', as it is called in Swedish, after badstuga, meaning bathing house).  These men are unusually dressed for sauna, with fresh birch branches strategically located in front of their bodies.  Some sumemr days it feels like a sauna in New Jersey, but it never really gets that hot (about 19- degrees!), and here certainly are no nice lakes or oceans to take a cooling off dip in.  Sauna is a great invention, and wonderful for both body and mind...
