4th Meeting: Saarland


For the fourth meeting i met with Daniel in the TAMK library. We decided to have a nice and relaxed meeting and only have some conversation in German and pick some useful words of Finnish here and there.

Mainly we talked about my year in Germany and about the state, Saarland, where Daniel comes from.  Saarland has a nice speciality called Schwenker. It’s pork broiled on a grill that hangs on a chain over a wood fire. Funnily enough, the three legged grill is called a Schwenker and the cook who makes the Shwenkers is also called a Schwenker.

We also talked again about the differences between Finland and Germany. Like the traffic and the variation of foods in the stores. And what we both found annoying is the expensive prices in Finland and both miss the inexpensive beer in Germany. It was a nice meeting where i could just speak in German without stressing about the grammar and using the wrong words and that kind of things.
