Geocache Description:


Tämä kätkö sijaitsee viitostien varrella Matin ja Liisan aseman pihassa.

This cache is located along the highway 5 at Matti's and Liisa's station.

Juhani Ahon (1861-1921, syntyi Lapinlahdella),ensimmäinen romaani kertoo Matista ja Liisasta, jotka asuvat syrjäseudulla omassa talossaan. Eräänä päivänä Matti käy Pappilassa ja kuulee rovastilta, että Lapinlahdelle on rakennettu uusi keksintö, rautatie. Koska Matti ei ole koskaan ennen edes kuullut sellaisista junista ja rautateistä, hän kuvittelee junan olevan jonkinlainen höyrylaiva, jonka alle on laitettu pyörät. Matti menee kotiin ja kertoo rautatiestä Liisalle, joka ei usko semmoista olevan olemassakaan. Niinpä Liisa käy ruustinnan
puheilla ja kuulee itse juttuja rautatiestä. Kevään tullessa he sitten viimein antavat uteliaisuudelleen periksi ja käyvät Lapinlahdella katsastamassa tätä niin kuulua rautatietä. Kokemus ei kuitenkaan ollenkaan vastaa heidän odotuksiaan. Matin ja Liisan aseman nimi
viittaa tuohon romaaniin ja tapahtumaan.

Juhani Aho (1861-1921) - surname until 1907 Brofeldt - was a journalist and the first Finnish professional writer, best known Finnish author in Scandinavia in his own time, who specialized in short stories called "lastuja" (splinters). Although Aho chose his subjects from Finnish
folk life, his works were far from provincial. They reflected consciously modern literary movements, especially realism, which is seen in his first novel RAUTATIE (RAILWAY) from the year 1884. Juhani Aho was born here in Lapinlahti. The novel tells about the first
railway in this area and an local old married couple, Matti and Liisa who wanted to see the first train and travel on it. That's why this place is called 'Matti's and Liisa's station'.
