Luxury dinner time

6th meeting took as to a traditional Finnish lunch.
Pizza from a Turkish restaurant.

As we waited for our traditional pizza, we spoke about famous persons in our countries.
Girls came up with Lugosi Béla a.k.a The Dracula. Not the real thing (as sad as it is). He played Dracula in couple of Hollywood movies.  Now I didn’t come up with any Finnish Hollywood movie stars. Only hockey players came to mind. Maybe that says something about our country.

From the Radio we could hear Finnish “adult pop songs” or Iskelmä. I explained to the girls that most of the iskelmä songs are covers from famous songs. Usually only the melody is the same but sometimes even the lyrics have been translated straight from English. Maybe the Finns weren’t that imaginative people back then?

Enjoy your meals!
