Exchange students have told me that they have been really amazed when they have seen two Finnish friends sitting together for a half an hour without saying anything to each other. Foreigners cannot understand how Finnish can be so long time without speaking. Now a days I feel more uncomfortable in the silence than before. I think that hanging out a lot with foreigners have changed me that now I prefer to keep the conversation going on than being in the silence. Time goes by more nicely when having a conversation with someone.

  1. doesnt silence makes u nervous, specially when u're with a person.. like in an elevator or sth. Do Finish people talk about the weather in the elevators? that's the star topic in Spain!
