During summer months the queues ol cars and buses arc hundreds ot meters long, the ( tossing piocedure is not the fastest." said a Finnish customs otfi-cial. The reason lies beyond the Iihi meter "no-man's-land" where Soviet border guards check passports and visas with time-consuming care. Yainikkala crossing point, some 1!' miles north ol Yaalimaa. is reserved only tor those who go to the Soviet I'nion In train.

Finland and the Soviet I'nion have ttiendlv and dose political relations nil the government plateau. It's when it comes down to tourist level that the contacts are what micht be desct ilted as sparse. On the Kdtl-mile hint: Finno-Soviet border there are only three places Ydalimaa, Vainikkal.i.

There is a new bridge there and the Russians have erected a customs post, signs that permission may be granted. "May be there is still some paperwork to be dune," said a Finnish border guard ollieiai. one tor Moscow and one lor Leningrad crossing the border daily . Further north Rajajooseppi is another crossing point lor cats going to Murmansk, a ta-mous but lonely Russian town on the Arctic Ocean. The road to Murmansk winds through spectacular Lappland scenery but only Mi.'i tourists have made their way there via Rajajooseppi. Hither because ot the slim tourist traffic or because ot a desire to limit tourism in this area the border is only opened three hours a day.
