Finland, Anyone?

For someone made the decision to get married at 21, I have a curiously hard time with commitments. Signing up for classes and buying airplane tickets elicit more distress and second-guessing that choosing to Tie The Knot. Odd, I know. (I guess it was an easy decision because my hubby is so awesome) (AWWW).

At any rate, today I bought 2 round trip tickets to India! We’re headed there this summer to scrounge up some fodder for this blog…Err…I mean, we’re going for Varun’s cousin’s wedding. It will be my first Indian wedding and I cannot wait.

As I was purchasing the tickets, I was faced with the following decision:

Can you believe all of those options? What is purine, anyway? I guess that’s what you get when you take FinnAir from Toronto to Helsinki to Delhi. (I still can’t believe there is a daily non-stop flight from Helsinki, Finland to New Delhi, India. How many Indians are there in Finland, anyway?)

So, tonight’s big question: If you had a 6 hour layover in Helsinki, what would you do? Thoughts? Restaurants? Finnish must-sees?!

    I initially thought ‘purine’ was some dog food brand but then remembered, that’s Purina… oops. Anyhow, I think you should order it– I think that would make a great blog story!

    btw, you should grab a barf bag from FinnAir and send it to sher-ping (sans barf)– she collects them. :-) (or at least used to but us friends still pass them onto her)

      I will definitely save her a (clean) barf bag! And I too that Purine was dog food, lol. Fingers crossed they serve us Finnish food!

    Peggy – That’s hilarious! (both the Purina and that Sher-ping collects barf bags)

    Meels – Purine is a building block in DNA. I think it’s in other bodily compounds too but I don’t remember. Biochem was too long ago.

    Mindy’s right, purine is a building block found in amino acids. People with gout need to have low-purine diets because it somehow aggravates gout (I only know this because my mom-in-law just explained this to me last week). What is gout? That’s also a good question! ;)

      Awesome that you know that! Love it. “What is gout” was going to be next question. Who knew airlines were so attentive to people’s health needs?!
