A very obliging fellow blogger has not only provided us with a shopping list, but has kindly and competently translated the planned purchases into English for us. So, thank you Kristiina. Please visit her blog here for some wonderful photos, and a glimpse of Finnish life.
This is what Kristiina had to say about where she lives, and where she shops.
We live in a municipality of Hämeenkyrö in western Finland. We do our shopping in a near by town, Ikaalinen, 14 kilometers from home.
We use normally two “malls”, they are not like malls there, these are small ones. In Ikaalinen is about 7000 inhabitants, so the malls are in the same scale, small.
The other is S-Market, a Finnish chain, the other very well known in Europe, Lidl, a German chain.
The area in red is Hämeenkyrö
And now for a very special shopping list.
Now we’ll know how to find the ice-cream and bananas when we shop in Finland.
PS I am running out of lists. All donations are pathetically and gratefully accepted.
