Gopal gopal! 4th meeting

So we went to Gopal in Kuninkaankatu this past Thursday.  Some of us were hungry so it was the perfect chance to get some nice spice food. Jonna tasted some varied food like: curry-tofu riisiä ja kasvis pyörät . I tried the savutofu kasvis pirakka. Tuuli took some maito kahvi.  We plan a couple of meetings for the next weeks, so we will have the dates in advance.

Third Meeting – Finnish time!

 

We visit Pyynikin Nakötorni!

This was the first meeting for finnish language. I felt a bit shy at the beginning because is always scary to speak in someone else’s native language and even more if it’s finnish, but I survived a few phrases like:

Mitä on sun suosikki musiikkia? Ajattelen että rock ja metallimusiikki on lähellä sydämeltä.

Mistä minä tykkään? -Now this was a challenge since the use of Mistä at the beginning didn’t make sense for me hehe. In spanish we would rephrased in a completely different way.

IIMG-20160217-WA0005 learned also how to say lie! -Valhe or Maata-

Munkki päivässä pitää kurvit kuosissa! – A donut per day keeps the curves up to date (fashionable).

Munkki päivässä pitää pyllyn pyöreänä. – A donut per day keeps the butt round. That is full truth from Munkkikahvilla, Pyynikilla.
