Hey. I'm an exchange student from Canada who's been living in Turku for the past few months (LOVE Finland, by the way). Over this time I've amassed a whole bunch of small euro coins (20 cent, 50 cent) that are sitting in a big pile on my desk. Can I go to the bank or something and exchange these into bills somehow? They're a bit hard to use as they are without carrying around tons of small coins. Thanks!

This has never made any sense to me. Yes, there are some swamps. But there's by far more forest. Arguably there's more lakes than swamps, too, at least from what I've seen. And both lakes and forests are much more pleasant than swamps. I don't think of swamps when I think of Finland, I think of vast forests and lakes. I've asked this question of several of my Finnish friends and family and no one's had a good answer yet! I'm curious if anyone here knows.

Also, does "Suomi" mean literally "swamp", "the swamp", "swampy" or some other form of swamp?
