How many R-Kisoki (Convenience stores) are there in Tampere? I do not know. Many. This man was standing in front of one fo them. His hands relaxed behind his back. He had time. I might have been waiting for someone who was inside. He might have thought about whether to go in or not.
Towards the centre, there is an area with several Asian supermarkets. They provide a great alternative to Finnish/European food. They seem to me as community centres where foreigners from the Middle East and Asia gather and share the latest about their life in Finland and from back home.
