What a warm reception!
Hi Simon and friends!
How are you doing? I´m really glad to hear from you all again :-).
Well Simon, thanks a lot for the lovely but weird compliment. Don´t worry, no offense was taken, ok? Ha Ha ;-).
Although I really fond of music, I don´t know what are the newest sounds in São Paulo. The city is so effevercesnt and everything happens so fast. Hmm... let´s see, I think Ana Carolina is a name that you might hear a lot here. Her songs are really great with a very good vibe. Nowadays I´m listening to an album of a Brazilian singer called Vander Lee. He uses strange objects such as pipes as musical instruments. The result is really amazing. Moroever, you´re absolutely right. Brazil is well-known for the music and dance. By the way Simon and friends, do you know that this year we´re celebrating 50 years of Bossa Nova? So it´s always good to listen to João Gilberto, Tom Jobin, Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho :-).
Anyway, after 9 hours of a nearly soul destroying day of work ( believe me, you wouldn´t like to see me in the end of the day. I look like a little zombie, hihi), I enjoy reading, watching films or organising my beloved film collection ( I´m a big fan of the seventh art). During the weekends, I love to go to exhibitions and to go to the cinema. Besides that, it´s also on the weekends that I have a whale of a time practising English with my friends at/on (which one is correct Simon? Could you talk a bit about prepositions, please?) Skype.
How about you Simon? I know you´re very into music, but do you like watching films too? How about you friends?
By the way, my sister has taken that picture. She was in one of the bridges which links the rooms at Pinacoteca museum. Pinacoteca is my dearest place in São Paulo. Here are some pictures of the Pinacoteca facade and the bridges in its interior. I´ve also posted a picture of a sculpture:
Friends, thank you very much for sending your comments on my blogs :-).
Adri, Cris, Carmen, James and Niddo, you are all great! Thanks for poping up here :-). I know that some of you have a very hectic life and you can´t be here very often.
Hey Carmen! Maybe now you can follow the blogs more closely ;-).
Hi Leila! How are you doing?
Dino thanks for your kind wishes. I hope you pass in your exam. My fingers are crossed for you :-).
Hi Mercé! I´m glad to be in touch again. If there´s anything you want to know feel free to ask, ok?
Hi Bïa! How are you? I haven´t heard from you for a long time. I suppose you´re quite busy with the IELTS preparation.
Aaah Marianna, thanks for remembering me :-). Oh I know you have a tough routine, however it´ll be great to hear from you on Facebook too. Who knows? Maybe one day you change your mind :-).
Hey Hyoshil! How are you and your cheeky monkey? I always remember the remarkably funny comments that your boy has made on my blogs :-). Ah, thanks for the tips for the FCE! Nice to know you´ve also taken this exam.
Ewa, Hanhdu, Rianto and Robert, nice to meet you.
Hi Antonio, FCE is an acronym for First Certificate in English. It´s an exam set by Cambridge. Take a look at this site if you want to know a bit more about it:
Pilar, I happy to know you like the way I write. You have a very good English and write very well :-).
Hi Antonio from Belgium! I´ve realised you´re absent. I´m looking forward to hearing form you again :-).
Ok guys, I have to go now. It´s dinner time for me :-).
Have a nice Tuesday and keep in touch,
PS- Simon, I loved the pictures! Nehir is a lovely little gal :-). Hey! How was to grow up at the Bard´s city?
