Toou moochi lakritsi, ai ai!

Written on August 15, 2007 by mimecine

LakritsiI have had so many types of licorice today that I really feel suuper-duuper-sikk. Been in Helsinki for two fabulous days now going to great stores and watching finns having a great late summer days. Did you know that finnish is completely uncomprehensible, but really beutiful as a language? Whenever they speak to me, I pretend I just didn’t hear them so that they will repeat themselves to me. After letting those spritzy sounds sink in, I sheepishly admit I only speak english. That is not nice of me at all, but I can’t help it. When people don’t hear me, I utter some mock-finnish just because I like it – I like the sounds as much as I like the place. I am hosting a crush on Helsinki in summerdress… /Marco

    I was working late into the night, staring at my computer for hours and thought of Kiosk and why I haven’t been by lately to hear some stories of places more fantastic than my apartment and thought of you, Alisa and Marco. I don’t have to call the shop to see if you are around or leave a lonely “are you back yet” voicemail: I can just check your blog! You have no idea how happy it makes me to think that you are somewhere in the world gathering goodies, getting stuck in airports and eating too much candy. What about coffee? Coffee? Let’s have some coffee from Finland soon.

    It’s called Kahve here! Kahve! They drink more of it that any other country (but apparently US is a runner-up…).
