It is still very bright and the sun is shining, I look at my watch, its 8 P.M in the night! Something must be wrong, I have just arrived in Helsinki, Finland and maybe I need to reset my clock to the local time.
Half an hour later, I check the time. It’s still bright but I now curiously inquire from my Finnish host, only to be told that it is summer and the sun does not set until 10pm. Well, initially I am surprised and cannot sleep after being used to the Kenyan time pattern, where the sun sets at six in the evening and rises at six in the morning, almost always.
