Second meeting with of our EOTO group started at Pyynikki´s Tower.
Pyynikki observation tower

When I arrived, Iris and Yuki were already there, so I joined them and we were going through some vocabulary about accomodation and hotels. Yuki also created a chart for me so I can learn hiragana and katakana in home ^^ arigatou gozaimasu :3 When it was less misty outside, we went up to the top of the tower, enjoying view (for free, as it was during Tampere aniversary day B-) ) after that we went to Tallipiha, practising time expressions and discussing “typical finnish/slovak appearance” a bit. It seems that everyone knows I,m not from Finland from a first sight q.q. But the same goes for Yuki. HA!

In Tallipiha there were shops, ponnies and few more shops, so we were practising numbers and questions useful for shopping in finnish and little bit in slovak. “Paljonko maksaa yksi hervonen?” O.< But when it comes to chocolate, no one cares how much it is.

Awesome Iris taught awesome me how to ask about amount of portions there, and then awesome Yuki get us some food. The amount was not so awesome, but it was tasty anyway. We stayed in Tallipiha for some more time, increasing dictionary and discussing friendly topics simultaneously.

Then we moved through small shops to shopping centre for some more practise of pricing, until 2pm, when me and Iris decided to go for “mustakmakkara”. Yuki still wanted to buy something in city centre, so we split. I ordered “mustamakkara kahdella eurolla” and was full of myself until the lady in kiosk asked me something in finnish. ._. well, it is nice to know how to ask for something, but I have still long way to go to actually be completely indepent customer 😀 After those tasty sausages were eaten (yall finnish guys really eat black sausage with jam only? o.o ) I had still some more vocabulary questions that Iris answered and corrected my pronunciation. But it was about time to say bye. So after more that 5 hour lasting meeting I headed home, enriched with lots of new words, bunch of phrase and one “jelito” (=mustamakkara=black sausage).
And also memories of pleasant time full of fun and learning at the same time.
