Chilling in Tampere

On Saturday the 22nd of August the exchange students and tutors gathered together at Keskustori at 13.00. The aim was to head to Pyynikki sightseeing tower and to the beach after that. Some managed to end up in Särkänniemi also while trying to find the tower but ended up at the right place eventually. After waiting for the last ones to arrive the party walked through the city to the sightseeing tower. The views were breathtaking and it was easy to show to the exchange students where everything were. Some stayed there to enjoy the traditional coffee and 'munkki' and the eager ones head to the Pyynikki beach where the picnic took place.

During the afternoon people enjoyed each others company by playing cards, football and mölkky. Some were also brave enough to go swimming and some poor ones managed to get sunburned pretty badly. They just commented that they didn't believe that it's even possible to get sunburned in Finland. Well, just to let you know, the sun shines also in Finland. :)
