    Ok well I have a foreign exchange student from Finland, she is very very attractive mind you, and I want to suprise her by taking her out to a restaraunt that serves finnish food. She doesn't like american food very much so I thought it would be nice. Does anyone know of any restaraunts in Des Moines that serves finnish food?

    You're hosting her or dating her? I'm confused....... I doubt there is any Finnish restaurants in Des Moines or even the state of Iowa for that matter. I think you'd be better off making an authentic "American" meal and make a Finnish dessert yourself.

    "You can't talk about foreign exchange girls without pics!"

    haha I agree!


    Good luck! I bet it will still taste American even if it is a "finnish" recipe.

    lol I will have to get a pic of her tonight if I can. This girl went from being able to drink and do anything in her country to not being able to do ANYTHING. She said that if you are tall enough in finland to see over the bar table you can order a glass of anything. Poor girl...

    You need to bring her by my place.
    My Russian Imperial Stout is at about 9 1/2% and is like black sludge (really good stuff).
    My Belgain Strong ale is at about 10% with a really nice dry finish.

    Is her name Lotta, by chance???  My husband and I have hosted exchange students for many years.  This year we have a girl from Paraguay.  She is part of the AFS exchange program.  So, we know most all the exchange students in this area - at least the ones associated with AFS.  So, that's how I know about a Finish girl - in Granger.  No, I'm not aware of any Finnish restaurants.  But I do know another Finish student this year.  It is a boy.  He attends Roosevelt.  I could put you in touch with him, if you want other ideas...

    Yea! That is her name, last name is mykkanen I think that is how u spell it atleast. I met the other young man from finland at the mall the other day. She is in my school, and I was thinking of asking her to prom. Just want to show her a fun time in America because she is home sick! Small world jeanette. She came over to my house the other day and saw my tank and was like "o, you have reef fish tank? I like thos lot!" she is still having problems with english but slowly but surely she is getting better. She lives about 2 minutes away from me actually.
