Huh helletta. Taalla kylla sulaa kuin jaatelo Manauksessa. Voi olla etta Suomeen ei tule kuin marka lantti, jos sitakaan mikali nama helteet jatkuu...Koko viikon on elohopea kivunnut sinne + 30 tienoille ja jatko nayttaa lahes yhta lampimalta. ---------------- Nyt se on ohi! Kaikki tentit on tehty, markkinoinnin projekti palautettu ja opiskelu talta kevaalta loppu. Illalla on loppujuhlat ja sitten onkin enaa pienen jalkipyykin aika. Strasbourgissa asun viela vajaat pari viikkoa ja sitten suuntaan kohti Itaista Eurooppaa. Mika sitten on fiilis nyt kun vaihto on virallisesti ohi? (Tai ei oikeastaan virallisesti, papereihin merkkasimme loppumisajankohdaksi 30.6.07 koska silloin tulee viimeiset tenttien tulokset), mutta minun kohdaltani ohi. Paallimmaisena on helpotus siita, etta tentit on ohi koska vaihtoni taalla nyt ei varsinaisesti ollut mitaan biletysta, vaan ihan oikeaa opisk... read more

Yesterday we went to an American World War II cemetery in St. Avold, France, and Strasbourg! The cemetery was humbling, and going to Strasbourg was really exciting for me; it was my first time to France, and my father's family ancestry comes from the Alsace-Lorraine region (our ancestor came from there when it belonged to Germany). Strasbourg is almost directly on the French-German border. The 2,000 year old city belongs to modern day France, and French is predominantly spoken, but it's adjacent to the Rhine River, and Germany is literally on the other side. Because of the centuries of going back and forth, it's considered the bridge between France and Germany, and there's a lot of elements of both in the town. The city also has around 650,000 inhabitants. Driving across the border from Germany ... read more

Onpa lammin vuosi menossa. Ensin Manauksen helteet ja nyt Strasbourgissa aurinko paahtaa. Jos en olisi sattumalta vilkaissut Suomen saata, niin syyttaisin ilmastonmuutosta, mutta ilmeisesti Suomeen on tulossa valkea vappu. Olen pahoillani teidan vappujuhlijoiden puolesta, nautin auringosta teidankin puolesta : ) Meilla on nyt menossa parin viikon kevatlomasta ensimmainen puolisko. Luulin ehtivani Stuttgartiin ja lahiseuduille ja vaikka minne, mutta viela mita, olen pakertanut markkinoinnin projektin kimpussa koko viikon ja vapaa-aikana opiskellut geopolitiikkaa tuleviin tentteihin. Pahuksen ITI-Ri kun vie ihmisen koko elaman! Mutta ainakin markkinointi on nyt hyvalla mallilla, hyvassa lykyssa saadaan koko homma valmiiksi jo talla viikolla tai ainakin viimeistaan loman loppuun mennessa. Ensi viikolla tosin hengailen nostalgisissa tunnelmissa Pariisissa, shoppailen vahan ja ehka siina ... read more

Joyeuses Pâques! Olen katkenyt paasiaismunia, tosin ihan vain omaan mahaani ja leikkinyt tipua shoppailemalla. Viime viikko olikin poikkeuksellisen mukava, koska sain pohjoisesta vieraita, jotka toivat auringon mukanaan ja saatiin nauttia ihanista kesaisista lampotiloista ja auringonpaisteesta. Anni ja Maria tulivat kaymaan ja toivat loman keskelle ahkeraa aherrusta. Maisteltiin paikallisia herkkuja, tutustuttiin nahtavyyksiin, mutta rennolla otteella. Museoita nyt on maailma taynna ja joskus museokiintiot vain on taynna... Sen sijaan nautimme kulttuuriannoksemme teatterinaytoksen muodossa ja kavimme katsomassa harrastelijateatterin version vaginamonologeista. Harrastelijateatteri heratti epailyksia, mutta onneksi saimme huomata olevamme ennakkoluulojen vankeja ja nautimme esityksesta kovasti. Esiintyjat olivat aivan loistavia, parempia kuin moni ammattinayttelija. Myos europarlam... read more

Strasbourg has changed so much since I arrived. It’s incredible to think that I arrived here in the cold, bare winter, and now, just over three months later, it’s spring. The whole place is green, there are flowers everywhere - it’s just so beautiful. To be honest, I really didn’t want the warm weather to arrive. I know that sounds strange because everyone knows how much I hate the cold, but I just thought that this gorgeous city would never suit the warm weather. I loved it bare, and I especially loved it covered in snow, but this greenery with flowers blossoming everywhere has made it more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Just the view from my room is different. Comparing the view from my room now to the one in my first blog ... read more

Spent about 4 nights camping in Strasbourg, a beautiful old town on the French side of the border between France and Germany. This was the first place we camped and nights were freezing, but we survived... just! Overall we really liked this place, because it was the perfect size for looking around, and it wasn't too crowded, but there was still plenty of atmosphere.... read more

Did you eat a clown this morning? (Tu as mangé un clown ce matin?) Absolutely, without a doubt, the funniest French phrase I've ever heard! Meaning; oh, you think you're so funny, what did you do - eat a clown this morning? I may have too much time on my hands but that saying just doesn't get old for me! It's been a while since the last blog because all I've really done since I got back from Amsterdam is go out. I go to uni for the measly 8 hours I have per week, do the measly amounts of homework needed to keep up with the class while at uni, and for the rest of the time it's party o'clock! Yes, I know I'm supposed to be here to study, but the way I see ... read more

Viime viikko oli saiden puolesta jaatava. On satanut rakeita, valilla jopa lunta ja paivittain vahintaan vetta. Lampotilat olleet siella juuri ja juuri nollan paremmalla puolella. Meteo kuitenkin lupasi taksi viikoksi reilusti lampenevaa, jopa +17°, toivottavasti pitaa paikkansa. Kevaiset lampotilat kelpaisi jo, koska toppatakki jai Suomeen lomalla ja kevat/kesatakissa on hieman kylma lumisateessa... Ainakin tanaan vaikuttaa oikein lupaavalta, aurinko paistaa eika palele. Nyt kun kaikkien nimet alkaa olla jotakuinkin muistissa (yhteensa meita on kv-suhteissa reilu 40 opiskelijaa), on hyva aika tehda pieni nimivertailu. On nimittain ollut hauska huomata miten paljon meidan suomalaiset nimet muistuttaa Ita-Eurooppalaisia nimia. Päivi kay oikein mainiosti Kalinin, Renetan ja Vasilin seuraan ja heille mm. Minun nimeni tuntuu olevan helppo. Verrattuna toisaalta ranskalaisiin etunimi... read more

We collected the car and somehow navigated to Nancy with a few tolls on the way. Not too stressed by the drive or by my directions and navigations. We head for the main plaza and find street parking, my reverse parking - on the opposide side of the road is not great. The actual plaza of Nancy was spectacular at night to say the least. The French really know how to show something off. By Day 2 we are already looking a little frazzled trying to find our way around the centre of the city, while looking for parking etc. Hence, the investement in TomTom our GPS system. To make Gary feel right at home, I have chosen Jane the voice, so Gary still has a woman piping commands at him. Jane has now directed ... read more

Just a quick one for my girls back home who love Lily Allen! Girls, she is amazing!! After my devastation about 6 months ago from being one of hundreds turned away from her Sydney concert due to an overwhelming numbers of fans trying to get into the tiniest club ever, I’m so happy to have finally seen her live in Strasbourg! It was so unbelievably fantastic! I couldn’t have imagined it to be better if I’d tried. And it was the first time ever that she sang Blondie’s ‘Heart of Glass’ live and it was fantastic - if you ever get the chance to see her live do not hesitate, it will be totally worth your while! She sang all of her best songs, except Naïve (Annie, I was thinking about you and hoping she was ... read more
