I had another friend, from this place, actually, with such ancestry, if I correctly remember him actually telling me so. Our GC'er was definitely not a skinny blond, but I have no reason to not believe anything he told me during our conversations by phone. We met in person only once.
Recently lurking & wandering to a social media site not generally visited in the West, I may have found my ultimate mate, sweet and shy, honest, living somewhere completely unknown to most people in our parts, somewhere on a coast, just above the very chilly northeast border with China. So out of the way, Milan hasn't found her yet, nor all its super wealthy pervs who sail above the radar of the law, but drool just like the rest of us rabble.
Go far enough into parts unknown, even just virtually, and you get reminded that yes, Virginia, there IS a slender blond supermodel somewhere with no attitude and absolutely no clue how desired she is by nearly every straight male on the planet.
That girl easily looked like she could be Finnish, so perhaps you are right Baldur. Not a long boat ride to the land of the rising sun.
