We had planned to arrive Pyyniki’s tower 9 am, so I was forced to leave my nice and warm bed too early. I and Yuki escaped mist inside and enjoyed famous doughnuts at tower’s cafe while waiting Marius, who had some issues with buses. We started to go through grammar and vocabulary we were interested in. For me that was hotel and cafe vocabulary (most of them are written with katakana because being loanwords from english).
Marius found his way to the tower and we lifted ourselves to the less misty top.
While heading to Tallipiha we practised both left/right and expressing time in Japanese and Finnish. Tallipiha was nice on busy with pony-ride and open shops. We had such wonderful Finnish practising situations while buying chocolate and a portion of smoked salmon. I taught “Kuinka iso annos on?” (How big is the portion?), “Yksi annos savustettua lohta, kiitos” (One portion of smoked salmon, thank you) and “Voinko maksaa kortilla” (Can I pay with card?).
Yuki decided to stay in city centre for shopping so I and Marius went together to get something to eat. We ended up eating black sausage (mustamakkara) and learning verbs in Finnish.
I think today’s meeting was a succes. We learned what we planned and even more. Nice places were visited, delicious food was eaten and we enjoyed ourselves. 🙂
