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.
This time we talked about seasons. What are they like and things to do on each season. Before starting, I really didn’t even know if we have the same seasons. Like, do they have winter in Portugal? Apparently they do, but it’s like finnish summer. Which is so unfair. I want that sunny and warm weather too that they have there! Even though I like winter, snow and ice and everything – it’s cool. But it’s got to get warmer on summer, really. Oh and we also went through the months again, maybe I’ll even remember them soon.
I also learned that the rest of the seasons, spring, summer and autumn, are pretty similiar in Portugal. So it was quite difficult for Renata to come up with stuff to do in each season, when you can do same thing every month, every season. Our seasons differ quite much so me and Kaisa came up with some different things.
