First impressions of the QBA17 group:

Finland is a cold country; even the summer is cold. It has very good infrastructure and the education system is one of the best. Things flow smoothly and there are rules and laws that are strictly followed. It takes care of it citizens like unemployment benefits and medical care and the transport system is convenient.

One major feature of Finns is their respect of time.

It was great to see that many races live together, people are calm, slightly anti-social and there are lots of fields and forests and comparatively few people.

It is interesting to notice that many people live with pets and cars yield for pedestrians.

However, the cost of living is high and there are still difficulties integrating foreigners.
