There is also a small town called Suomi, Ontario, not far from Uppsala, Ontario. Canada is great like that. I often travel to New Iceland (southwest coastal area of lake Winnipeg), where you have towns called Gimli, Arborg, Hnausa (is it's official name, but was originally Hnausar), Hecla and so on (Riverton used to be called Lundur), and right in the middle of it all there's a place called Komarno by Balaton Beach. =) -------ferko Ferenc Gy.
