1st walk thru Kuopio

Bennett as the good tour guide!

sunny 25 °C

Bennett took some time to take us thru the walking passages of the student life that he has learnt over this past 3/4 months. He is good! I am glad for all those years of chatting with him like he ma buddy (He is really a great person).. he walked us on shortcuts to the BIG very affordable shop that Mikko drove us to upon our arrival. The shop is called Prisma and he says its the cheapest u can get as a student!


We were supposed to buy some groceries but we found it closed, so as a treat he took us for a loong walk to the city center. The trees here are just for me n Monty! waitse its just beau....nice, green trees with an average height of a 3 storey building! yea! almost all of them are actually taller than that...and green. I like this place...

Its expensive here, legend was true! but as long s we follow Bennett's survival tips u got nothing to worry bout, He is a good guide. And hey, a bicycle is a good thing to have here! Finnish people use more bikes than cars in summer! everywhere there is a huge packing lot for them! Bennett bought one for 80 Euros, he says he'll sell it to Siphokazi n I for 30 Euros when he leaves in 2 weeks (he was waiting for us n the Service Design course)! We gon split the cost n get it, it'll b worth it coz public transport is damn expensive here.


The good thing is our vasity, student centers, international offices n stuff are within walking distance so its ait. But for shops a bike will b better than walking. I just took a shower now, its slightly dark now..got my Service design articles to read.
