Pyynikintori (Fin-Rus meeting)

As it is the end of the 2nd period, we all having problems to find the time which suits everyone. This time we decided to meet at Pyynikki Observation Tower, so we could study drinking coffee and having one of this delicious doughnuts and also we were planning to go up to the  top of the tower, but since it’s getting dark really fast now and the weather was freezing, we decided that we feel pretty comfortable inside as well.

It was Saturday’s evening, so I wasn’t that surprised that place was busy when we arrived, so we didn’t have much choice than study outside for some time, well….it wasn’t too bad, taking into account that we had a cup of hot coffee 😀 We continued to study with our favourite book and this time we translated text and discussed relevant topics. The difficulty of the text was that it was full of Russian sayings, which are really tricky to translate sometimes. Sometimes it is difficult even to explain because mostly it goes from the culture. However, we managed to find some similar phrases in Finish as well.

Eventually, we got cold and changed our location 🙂 But when we moved inside we mostly were talking and sharing our stories and some cultural experiences.

I really like d this meeting, it was super cosy and warm 🙂
