Gli amici finlandesi

I think it is kinda funny that wherever I move, I always have Finnish or Swedish best friends. When I lived in Victoria/ Canada I always spent my time with Bea or Daniel from Sweden. When I was an au pair in Monza/ Italy, I spent my evenings with Di. With her we had the craziest parties at Hollywood and always hitchhiked home from Milan. I am so grateful to be still alive! I will never ever forget the huge black bodyguard in blue tiny Fiat who brought us home once or the white leather seat which I might have ruined with Cola (that BMW owner was so angry...hih). Those were great times... ;o)
Here in Milan I am always in contact with my dear Anne. She works in an outlet close to my home. On Tuesday we had a great dinner at my place and ended up to Noon for a drink later. My good friend Teemu joined us too. When school work is crazy I need a break from it, once in a while at least...

On Friday we went to see Anne with Teemu. We kinda ended up fooling around with designer clothing... This black lace "thing" I planned to buy for my mom for x-mas. My hometown Rauma hosts once a year "Lace-weeks" which main event is Black lace-night, then everybody dresses in black lace, obviously. Hanging with these friends and talking in my mother tongue is great.


On Wednesday after school I met Irene for aperitivo and dinner. She is doing a Master in Marangoni so she knows what it is to be busy. I was kinda depressed (or going nuts) in the beginning of the week. The weather was miserable and I worked for school night and day. I also find Italians nowadays really really rude. They always push, cut in or aren`t that polite at all. I have become pretty convinst that the women dislike me, but hey... c`èst la vie. I am evidently in their territory. I guess the novelty of living here has become ordinary...

Ulkomailla asuessani itsekin usein jostain syysta hengailen aina skandinaavien kanssa. Kai naiden muiden Pohjolan ihmisten kanssa sitten vaan synkkaa hyvin :)
