After the first meeting, we decided that next time we should visit Pyynikin näkötorni: The beautiful tower where people love to eat fresh doughnuts. Unfortunately, the weather was so bad, windy and rainy that we didn’t want to go there. Instead we went to Pyynikin munkkikahvila which is located in the heart of Tampere, Keskustori. Same doughnuts, but different environment.
Пончик = doughnut
We chatted little while we enjoyed our snacks at the coffeehouse. Soon we noticed that we were speaking too much English and we decided that we should plan our next meeting better and bring our notebooks with us.
Because we didn’t have much to study, we went shopping to department store Sokos. It was a funny way of learning new words. We studied for example clothes and cosmetics. Maksim and I also wanted to explain the idea of Moomins to Yulia. Everyone had their own favorite character.
Before Yulia left to partying, we taught her the word “nääs” which is the most typical word in the slang of Tampere. It was really funny because after that Yulia sounded like a local when she spoke Finnish. We continued the evening with Maksim in the bar Oluthuone. We discussed Russia in general and watched pictures and videos from the Maksim’s trip to Russia.
