Buf, desole pour les francophones et hispanophones mais j'ai pas des temps pour ecrire tout en francais, alors je change a l'anglaise.

Wow, its amazing, two days of classes and they already thought all the alphabeth, undreds of new words and expressions, all the vowels, and now they want us to write all the new words in arabic for tomorrow. It is absolutely crazy and intense, and arabic is such a beautiful language.

Even more, the school is amazing, full of professors from top class universities, students of cience po, journalistes, students of women affaires in islamic countries, ... I am learning so much about the country, middle east and islamic culture. There is also a lot of space to do research here, in particular in water management as the problem drying problem is REALLY important. I would love so much to have the chance to stay for longer.

About the daily experiences, I post some of the pics I took yesterday, and a screenshot of when I tried to access the website of the journal elmundo.es and I typed "elmudo.es", this gives an idea of the internet issues.
