29th of April at TAMK
On this meeting we went over the four seasons, and I obviously did my usual gag of commenting how Finland for me is basically winter, winter, Portuguese winter and winter. I still can’t believe I’d ever be grateful for 0º or 10ºC when just 10º is already considered a colder than usual winter where I come from. Kaisa and Tiiu taught me about what one can do on each season, I went more on the characteristics of each since I couldn’t think of season specific activities, especially since as long as it isn’t raining you can literally go for a picnic or barbecue any time of the year, while activities here are limited by the temperature outside. Though Tampere really seems to have become more alive since Spring arrived, with colour coming back and people actually walking about more. It is a truly beautiful contrast.
