This evening I flew from Brussels to Helsinki and from there to Joensuu, in eastern Finland. The flight to Joensuu was one of the most enchanting I have ever been on. The turboprop plane flew most of the way just at the top of a cloud layer. This made things a bit bumpy, but it also gave the impression of sailing on a cloud lake, with an occasional fluffy bit splashing up. There was also a meteorological/optical phenomenon whereby I could see a small silhouette of the plane scurrying along on the cloud alongside us, surrounded by a rainbow halo. No need for magic mushrooms on that flight!
