The only drawback of Tampere were the people there. My general opinion about Finnish people is that they like to smile, give you directions but nothing more, you cannot be friends with them because they seem to be afraid or just act in a really bazar way. Everybody knows English there but they are so shy to speak it! That was absurd - I had to force them to speak and then it appeared that their English was great but they said that they are afraid to speak it because they don't use it. On the contrary, I met two Finnish girls totally outside of ESN or the University, so called locals, they were very friendly but they said that was because they have been to other European countries and they liked the Southern lifestyle-so different from their own, maybe just more open-minded and free.
