Yes, I've heard about Finnish. Related to Hungarian, is it?


Yes, but I'm afraid it would take a linguist to notice.

You are welcome. I'll contact you off line perhaps, if that's OK.


Yes, of course.

Undoubtedly this is due to the fact that you live in a literate country
where people read books. Tell me, do Finns drink alcoholic beverages?


Sure. About the same as in most Western countries, I suppose. Most do,
some don't, and some drink more than their fair share.

Sometimes it's nice to sit down with a book and a scotch.


Indeed. I don't drink often, but when I do, a bit of rum or whisky is
what I take (straight or with a bit of water).

Forgot to mention: I'm drinking Bai Hao today paired to El Hadj Djeli Sory
Kouyate playing Mandinka Balafon. Can't go wrong, especially since it's a
rainy day.


Never had of either of those. But a bit of tea-trivia in case anyone's
interested: it's "tee" in Finnish. The pronunciation is (in this case)
very similar to German.
