Signs of Alcohol Use

Signs of Alcohol Use

This is the second flask I have seen for sale in the small village of Rapla, I happened to go to two grocery stores and both sold this type of flask. The first time I saw this, I did not care, the second time I realized this was a standard item to be sold in a no name grocery store.

Drinking seems to be a daily and all the time activity here; I smell alcohol on the breath or that heavy liquor smell on many people. I just left the park here in Parnu, at 9:30 am, there are three people drinking. I almost go the photos of a guy by the bus stop with a bottle. Parnu is not a big city, more or less the feel of a small city. Rapla is very small.

When looking or inspecting cultures there are small specific items that explain the behavior of people. What they sell and buy shows how they live. This place is very rich compared to the rest of the planet.

i want a hip-flask... Makes drinking whiskey seem so much more sophisticated! I suppose the hobo-way would be the bottle in a brown paper bag... but hey... why not have luxary every once in a while.

I realised the other day that when I go to America I won't be old enough to buy alcohol. That is quite upsetting. Not because I drink a lot, but because I like going into bars, especially ones with live music. And I would assume that, like here, if you're not old enough to drink you're not allowed in at night. shame that.

Two Finns decided to go to a remote cabin so that they could do some serious drinking. After several days of drinking, one said to the other, "Do you think maybe we should get something to eat?". The other one said, "Did we come here to talk or to drink?"
