This morning I dug out my iPod Shuffle and setup iTunes to download the Bob & Tom Show Podcast. No more Finnish morning shows for the drive to work! It worked well except for the aux jack in the Prius is finnicky. The plug has to be installed just right, jiggle it, jiggle it... OK, now don't touch. Despite how wretched a vehicle the Prius is it's nice to have English to listen to during the morning drive.

After an uneventful day at work and another moose free drive home, Dave and I tried a new place for dinner, Salud. It's definitely one of the finer dining places in Tampere. Fine moreso in food quality and presentation than in atmosphere, it's still relatively casual. The menu is diverse, even including Rocky Mountain Oysters. Each meal includes the salad bar which has some salad, but mostly good olives, bread and amazing cheeses. As if the salad bar wasn't good enough both Dave and I ordered snails. They were perfectly and uniquely done in a pesto sauce and where served with a good, hearty bread. For main course, I had the pepper steak garlic potatoes. Although a typical dish in Finland, it was done very well. I'm sure we'll be going back to Salud.
