Today we visited to ”Joulutori”. The weather was awful so we took just a quick visit to see how it looks like and what do they have there. The sales persons were really nice and they helped me to translate the names of products I didn’t know. We also get to taste some nice things. It is actually quite difficult to translate words which I don’t use in basic sentences. And some products were new for me too, so we both learned something new! Despising the weather, we had a nice quick learning tour there =)
Then we went to Siperia and just walked there and chatted. At the same I told about the museums and factoryside of Tampere. Finding the perfect cafeteria is always so difficult, so we looked it for a while. Eventually we went to Ståhlbergs café opposite to Anttila. It was really nice place. The atmosphere was warm and cozy and the confectioneries looked yummy!
Today we talked e.g. about family and travelling and difficulties what you can run into when travelling. In many countries you will manage with English, but somewhere the culture is like you should now some basic lines in their language. So it is useful to know even a little bit of many languages, to make a good impression.
Now when it’s Christmas time, we talked about manners and traditions. In Korean they don’t have the same kind of Christmas food than we do in Finland. It is mostly just a holiday and time to spend with family. But gifts and the food is not the main thing. Actually they eat cake then, which sounds really good.
Time flies and we stayed there for a while just talking and laughing. It was really nice meeting =)
