Where in Vantaa? I live in Klaukkala (Nurmijärvi). It's next to Vantaa. Ok, there's kilometres and kilometres of forest between Klaukkala and the closest town in Vantaa LOL. But anyway. I've been here almost 12 years. Not going anywhere anytime soon LOL.

Dont be offended, your usage of Rd. told that youre not a finn nor understand what that road name where you live actually means so i just wanted to point out how finnish street names are formed :)
No offence intended, just education about streetnames in finland :)

I agree. It wasn't in offense what we said. As I said, it was cute.

katu = street
tie = road
polku = path?
kuja = lane

I can't remember what else right now.

I wasnt affended its just when i look the finnish words up, there are so many. I have three finnish books an you look up the same word an they are different from one book to the next. My boyfreind says a word and his mother uses a different word. Sometimes i cant find in my books. His daughter will use a different word also. Gets a little confusing for me.
Thanks for letting me know some finnish words i can use. Im sorry if i offeneded you. :D
