Hello Ana Paula and Everyone else!
Hi Ana Paula! Well I’m really looking forward to getting to know more about you! It seems you’re a bit of an old hand at this blogging business (no offense). Actually, you look like a real spring chicken in your photograph (that’s some kind of strange compliment!! Ha!Ha!). So tell me, what do you do for fun after a near soul destroying day at work? Are you into music? What are the hot new sounds coming from Sao Paulo these days (I’m researching for my program!) Brazil is, after all, famous for it’s music and dance. By the way, that is a very interesting picture of you sitting at the window. Which window is it? Is your photographer friend Spiderman or something?
Good Luck to Marvin (everyone send him some good vibes to help him get through his CELT!!!). We believe in you Marvin!
Now I’d just like to say a very big thank-you to all those who did their homework and more importantly, for sharing with me your thoughts and feelings about where you live.
Brian from Taiwan. It’s a privilege to here from you sir! Hope you are not one of those students under great pressure!
Maione from Italy. I have visited Italy a couple of times and have loved every place I’ve been. I will be sure to put Tuscanny on my list of places to visit in the future! (Is it a rural area?)
Haliza from Malaysia: I’ve heard lots of good things about KL. Istanbul is also multi-racial and multi-cultural (from different areas in Turkey and other countries). This always makes more interesting doesn’t it?
Fahima from UAE. Gel! Gel! Gel! (as they say in Turkish)
Letizia from Rome: You described your magnificent city like a poet! Such beautiful writing. This must be the effect of living in such a rich and colourful place. I spent a few days in Rome and will be sure to revisit!
Christine from Germany: Because of your vivid description, I feel like I’ve just visited your town. Also, never give up on being sociable!!! It is always best to communicate!
Vladimir from Ukraine: the place where you live sounds as special as you! Please keep up with the comments as you always put a smile on my face (and my wife’s!). You have a rapier wit sir! Glad to hear the youth are polite and well bred!
Mauricio from Brazil: I think you can identify phrases very well! Though “phrases” does not only mean “phrasal verbs”. Why don’t you check out some of our other friends’ comments (Christine from Germany for example) to get some more ideas about finding phrases. Good Luck! Phrases are everything!
Lizeth from Argentina: It’s great to find a home away from home isn’t it? By the way, I love your answer “It’d be a pleasure”.
Monica from Brazil: Thanks for your kind about my family!! (FYI however, my daughter is the spitting image of her handsome Dad!) Which town or city do you live in? I have often though that Brazil must be similar to Turkey in certain ways (and obviously different too!). Fuzili is a famous (though very old) Persian poet. He once wrote:
All that is in the world is love
And knowledge is nothing but gossip
His name has a very interesting meaning and reason as to why he chose it Check here for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuz%C3%BBl%C3%AE
Naheed: I’m so glad that you tuned in!
Marianna: Why would I be disappointed in you? I can’t stand pop music myself! Take care and have a good rest when you can!
