Kalle would probably do much better, Finns are quite accustomed to the sauna. Are you familiar with saunas? Don't think you'll need them....

Definitely a culture thing. We're not completely averse to hugging here, though. I tend to get hugs from female coworkers on special celebrations. All-male hugs are normally reserved for family. Such a hug would probably be unnatural to many. But an all-female hug would not.

The touching part aside from celebratory hugs and introductional handshakes is very rare. I try to touch a little when occasion arrives, probably because I have plenty experience with non-Nordics, but it's not done by many. Can be interpreted wrong also. Lay a consoling hand on the shoulder of a distressed girl and some will think it's an untimely pass at her. Maybe even sexual harassment if it's an underling.

Jacuzzis I have no experience with, but I've heard the same thing.

We are two sides, yes. You are the portrait of the Queen, I am the winter landscape depicted on the other side.

I guess the face that im a woman and not a men let me the privilege of touching and hugging without question asked or faces, hell even sexual harassment.

So 2 men hug outside of the family doesn't seem natural or acceptable?

35 is really, really rare, but record is 37.

Two players I don't particularly like, yet not hate. I'm just used to cheer for their opponents.

Maybe I'd prefer Andy to win, Nole already has AO.
