In a savanna called Siikaneva.

A vast plain covered by yellow hay, it looks like savanna. But little chance to see a zebra here, it is a Finnish swamp. A very beautiful one actually. By the way, we should respect the swamp of Finland. It is apparently a matter of pride, the country is named after these swamps.
