So, its Wednesday. And the new exchange students from Australia, South Africa and Brazil have arrived a few days a go, and they have been attending language camp in Karkku!!!! There are 22 of them, and today they came to Tampere to tour the city, SO WE WENT TO MEET THEM!!!! About 20 of us met in Tampere at 12 and headed to this really cool lounge/bar/cafe in the city. We hung out there for an hour or so catching up, and drinking hot cocoa! Eddy Meksiko, Valeria and I came together on the train from Turku, and on the way Valeria made some Mate (south american kind of tea). We drank a bunch of it, then didnt eat or drink anything else all day. That stuff is crazy. So we all walked to the bus ... read more

Having managed to work out Tallinn's tram and trolleybus system, we managed to get back to the waterfront to catch our 12.00pm hydra-foil back to Finland. However, out of the 4 terminals at waterfront, none of them were for the Linda Line. Where the hell is it? It's 11.30am. The girl at the info desk in ferry terminal A, then tells us that the Linda Line terminal leaves from the Linnahall, 700m back in the direction from which we came. 700 metres?! She says once we see it, we can't miss it. Well, I hope she's right because it is 11.35am now which leaves us little room for error in order to catch our boat. So we jog lightly back the way we came and we see the Linnahall on our right. But it's just a ... read more

Hey everyone! I meant to start this blog before I left, but I guess I procrastinated a little too much. So, now I'm in Finland! The plane rides were very long. I flew from Detroit to Amsterdam which was almost 8 hours, and then I flew from Amsterdam to Helsinki which was about 3 hours. I got to Helsinki yesterday at about 5:00 PM and I was incredibly jetlagged. They took us all on a bus from the airport in Helsinki to the language camp in Karkku where I am now. I've been meeting alot of cool people here. Most of the people here are from the U.S., Canada, or Mexico. Although I did meet someone from Italy and a girl from Germany. The girl from Germany, I think her name is Christine, is also living ... read more
