When were you in Florence? I was there last April, what a beautiful town!
Can't comment though, I did not take a taxi once. Everything was within walking distance except Pisa tower :lol: . Took a train then...

Yes, you can buy "wild" food, you can have a "wild" time, when events are uncontrolled around you, and you can be "wild" in the angry sense. And quoting Houndog Taylor, "I'm wild about you baby". :mrgreen:


Thank you Maxx, that's a nice compliment! My first language is finnish (yes, suomi). BTW, Sverige=Sweden, svenska=swedish.

Finnish sometimes sounds quite abrupt, staccato, almost angry to English ears. Is it true it's more closely related to Asiatic languages than European ones?

Although many of us tend to think we have absolutely nothing in common with the russians, truth is that both the people and language come from around Ural mountain-Volga river. Not very european.
Drinking habits seem to have a close relationship to russians, too.
