Spanish/Finnish in Vohvelikahvila

Teresa and I met in Vohvelikahvila. I been wanting to go there for a long time now and she had never been there (eventhough she lives right next to it!) so it was really nice we went there. We both had sweet waffles with ice cream. For the sauce I chose maple syrup and she caramel. Even though maple syrup is not Finnish, Teresa did not know it, so I was trying to explain it. I also had chai latte, which she tried for the first time from me and agreed it truly tastes like a Christmas in a cup!



Since we were in a café, we learned some food related words. Some of them, like plate, spoon, fork and knife we’d already learned during our Ikea tour, but this was good rehearse to see how well we could still remember them.




Some food related words:

¿Teneis leche de soja? = onko teillä soijamaitoa? = do you have soy milk?

After eating the conversation somehow turned into different colours and different ways to express colours in different language.  So here are some colours:

blanco = valkoinen = white

lila/violetta = violetti = purple

Also here at the end couple other useful words, if it would happen to snow again:
