     “This is good central location for northern Finland, Norway and Sweden. And the quiet surroundings in Lapland are ideal for meditation and concentration,” said Phramahaboontin Punyathacho, leader of Buddharama Temple at a press conference there first week of March.
     Fredrika is located in Åsele province which has attracted many Thai seasonal workers, picking berries there, and some have settled in the area.
