The Finns

Having been in Finland for 6 months now, I feel they are too reserved. I mean reserved not in the common sense of the term, but as in too humble or understaters. If the British are known for their stiff upper lip, Finns probably come a very close second. Most people from other cultures that I have known, including my own (Indian), have a tendency to make a big deal about little things. Finns on the other hands practise the reverse art - making a small deal about big things. If only the rest of the world were like that - John Lennon wouldn't have had a chance to sing Imagine. ;-)
