Visitors from Finland

 On Monday we had a very nice couple from Finland visit us for lunch.

 It gave the staff a good chance to use their English skills, especially as they needed to find a bank when they realised we didn't take cards! (And yes, LIQUID we are still waiting for that functionality!)

 On leaving they taught us a little Finnish, "Kiitos paljon" which means Thank you.

 Even here, in a quiet backwater of Shinjuku, we are seeing many more foreign tourists, so we maybe need to promote our English language skills more.

 And the reply to, "Kiitos paljon"?

 "Ei kestaä" of course.
