Meeting in Pyynikin näkötorni

Our third meeting was a little bit different than previous. We met in Pyynikin näkötorni. This was a nice place to visit, because I have so many times, that I have been there before. Today was a nice weather, sun shining and in outside was snow. We took in munkkikahvila traditional munkki (noughnut) and coffee or chocolate.

Today was the day of teaching finnish. We talked quite much finnish together, because Isa know quite much finnish words. We talked for example about cafe words and music. There was in cafe’s wall different boards, which we discuss something, for example how these could be made..actually Isa and Suvi talked the most, because I can say that I don’t know any art things.

Time goes so fast, also today. Was nice to spend time with these girls. 🙂
