Kind of new in these parts.

Post by meenfreem » Thu Jun 12, 2003 10:33 am

you guys rock!

but to explain my situation... this juli I'll be moving to finland to be with my fiancee. I'm coming from Holland btw, but I'm a bilingual english speaker and most people think I'm from Canada. Ahwell....

But to my surprise... I'm not allowed to register with Manpower?!? Because I don't speak fluent finnish... not a new story to you guys I gather... but since it is a Dutch company, I'll start kicking over here :)

I'll be coming in to check the threads often... and hopefully we can meet up in destination HEL in summer.

When and where will be the next beer event?

By the way: I recently joined this group, I have lived some time in Finland now and I came originally from the Netherlands.

Kewl deal. Though I guess I am a bit late as I finally got home from work.

I'm originally from San Francisco, CALI USA, but moved here as I got a job with Nokia.

This is true. I have been told by many of our Finnish friends that I am an Imported Finn---eating malmi during easter, jumping in the ice water during the winter time after sauna...and drinking lots of beer and watching Formula's on sundays.
