Finnish term or phrase: Soumi an hyva, sisu
conversation
stacy
English translation:Finland is good, determination
Explanation:
This is written by someone who does not speak much Finnish. It should read:
Suomi on hyvä, sisu
but even then, it makes little sense.
Maybe he meant to say:
Suomalaiset ovat hyvin sisukkaita
(Finns are very determined)
Sisu = a quality that Finns are very proud of, a kind of dogged determination in the face of adversity.
