So long, my friends!
Dear Alex, and dear all,
Hahahaha!!!! Sorry, but I can help myself. I was imagining you at the bus having a fit of laugher. Hahaha!!! Ok... hmmm, hmmm, itīs not funny. Actually I didnīt know about this public transportation 'rule' in London. Here in Brazil, the public transportation is crowd and noisy, people talk to each other, sing, shout, evangelise other people, anyway... itīs really crazy. I think would be a great idea if we had some similar rule here in Brazil.
I have an embarrissing experience related to books too. However, I think mine is more painful. Differently of you Alex, I go to work walking, due I live near my job. In only 5 minutes I get there, and I know the way to my work by heart, yes, I know it very well. So, ok... ok, thatīs can sound a little bit weird, but I have the habit to read while Iīm walking. I donīt have to take any bus, I live near my job, but I donīt want to leave the book that Iīm reading at home, and in 5 minutes I can read at least five pages of it. Oh... in that time I was reading The Magic Moutain, by Thomas Mann, which was very hard to put it down, in everywhere I went, I was with it, and then, in a sunny day of October, I didnīt count with a big hole that appeared on the sidewalk, which I only noticed when I was fallen on the floor like ripe tomato. Yes, I fell, and it hurt. However, the hard thing my dear friends, it wasnīt to fall, the hardest thing was to stand up and face the people who passed by on the street.
After all, I looked at the book, and threre wasnīt any demage in it, only my knees were aching, so I started to laugh alone, it was quite funny. Despite this happenings, I didnīt change my habit, I still continue reading while I walk, but now there is a slight difference: I pay more attention on the sidewalks. [ ;-) ]
Today you gave me really, really nasty questions for answering. I guess itīs my good bye pressie. Letīs go!
' Just like you, I love coffe and books ( of course films are among them), actually I think they make a perfect partnership, though Iīve never read a book sat at a café beside a river.'
' You mentioned my poetic mood in your blog, in fact, I felt like this because yesterday I read an article about a new temporary exhibition at Língua Portuguesa Museum, which is inspired by Clarice Lispector works.'
Iīll be waiting for the right answers in your next blog.
Now, itīs time to say good bye, and also to say thank you for all of you who made my student blog month so amazing!!!

Hey Alex! Thank you very much for the nasty questions and the bad jokes ( they arenīt so bad!). You are a great and kind teacher, oh... I wonīt forget to mention that there isnīt doubt that you are a strikingly handsome man. You made my learning English adventure richer and funnier.
One more thing before I go. Paul, do you think that could be possible in the future we download the teacher blog page? You know, there is a excelent material for studying there, and it would be great if we could download the page.
