31 Days Of Friends, Day 6: Ville

On Day 6 of my project, I spent a few hours sitting at Coffee House with Ville, whom I hadn't seen in three years. The last time I saw him, we were recording a voice over for a cleaning products advertisement in a warehouse in Ulvila.  Since then, we'd spoken through Facebook a few times but never managed to arrange a time for a coffee until now.

He ordered breakfast while I ordered cold brew coffee, something that isn't common in Pori (well, proper cold brew at least). I had been told this particular version had a similar flavor to a Tim Horton's iced cappuccino, my favorite coffee beverage in the universe, so I was obligated to at least try it.

The cold brew didn't taste bad, it just wasn't as delicious as I would have hoped.  Luckily my long, engaging chat with Ville made up for it all. We talked about the last three years, our jobs, working in our industry in Finland, and Finland in general.

After we finished our food, we walked down the walking street and popped in to my office, since I'd wanted Ville and my boss to meet each other for a long time now.  They got along just as well as I'd guessed, and I left feeling accomplished.

I'm already looking forward to when I'll see Ville again and I've asked myself every day why I waited three years to arrange a meeting.
