Una semana en Canadá – Quebec y Montreal (Parte 2)

principal2

No había comentado en el anterior post sobre Quebec [leer aquí] que de lo que me di cuenta en Canadá es de que están obsesionados con el aire acondicionado. ¡Es verdaderamente horrible! Me pican los ojos, me duele la garganta, hacía un ruido escandaloso y pasé mucho frío. Les debe gustar mucho el frío o algo, porque yo no lo veía normal.

Pero bueno al tema: el jueves, viernes y sábado fue el turno de la ciudad de Montreal. Llegué un jueves por la tarde, hacía buen tiempo, así que salí a la calle a pasear. Por la calle me encontré a una conocida y le pregunté por cosas que hacer en la ciudad y dónde comer. Ella me dijo de ir a un lugar muy conocido llamado “Cinqo” donde servían platos por cinco dolares. Después me dijo de ir a una de esas librerías de segunda mano que abundaban en la ciudad. Y que podía disfrutar de la lectura de uno de los muchos parques que se encontraban en la ciudad.

Una semana en Canadá – Quebec y Montreal (Parte 1)

Me puse la mochila a la espalda y ya sentía toda la energía para empezar el viaje. No me podía quitar la sonrisa de los labios: una semana viajando por la Canadá francófona me esperaba. Empecé por Quebec y acabé en Montreal, las dos ciudades en pocos días, sin prisa, despacio y a mi manera.

Fair Trade MUST Be The Normal

fair_trade

The other day I was bored at home and decided to watch a documentary called “The True Cost” and it was about the reality behind the clothes industry. I thought the documentary would not teach me anything new: everyone is aware that in our globalized world all clothes are made in developing countries which recourse to cheap labour and exploitation. Of course, I had always been sad about that thought, but then I would just ignore the situation and continue with my life, at the end I thought, I could not do anything about it.

Anyways, with the documentary I did learn some few new things… Lire la suite

Si tienes un mal día…

Si tienes un mal día…

Tengo mis días malos. En los que pienso en todo lo que pudo haber sido y no fue. Muchas veces me pregunto qué hubiera pasado si le hubiese dicho a esa persona lo que sentía por ella. Esas historias de amor jamás contadas. O si en vez de haberme decantado por una decisión hubiese elegido la otra opción. Seguramente todo hubiese sido diferente. Si me hubiese quedado, sino me hubiese ido. Me siento a veces como un pez de agua dulce en el fondo del océano. ¿Cuándo encontraré mi lugar? ¿Cuándo seré tan “normal” como el resto? ¿Cuándo me perdonaré por mis errores? ¿Cuándo confiaré en el resto?

The Secrets of Luxembourg

luxembourg

Once upon a time, there was a small country, in the middle of beautiful forests and valleys. This small country had also many castles that looked as if they were taken out from a fairy-tale. The bucolic country also counted with many banks and financial institutions and with a population among the richest in the world.

Luxembourg is a country (and city) in Europe bordering, France, Belgium and Germany, for those of you that did not know. In Luxembourg, they speak Luxembourgish and they also have two other official languages, French and German. It is the siege of many European institutions including the European Court of Justice.

It is now my second year living here. So, as an insider, I wanted to share with you my impressions of this lovely city, a little bit of history, as well as, my favorite places that I have discovered over time.

Passing the HSK 3

HSK3

When I was taking the HSK 3 I was surprised there was not much advice on the internet on how to pass the exam. It is true that the “secret” is studying, I can only recommend that of course, but if you want to strategically study and successfully pass the exam then continue reading J

The HSK 3 is a little bit more complex than the other two previous levels in the sense that there is no pinyin (latin letters). However, with the secrets that I will share with you below and which I acquired from the experience, you will rock it. Also, these secrets are for every Chinese HSK exam, so if you are taking HSK 1, or 2, or 4, or 5 or 6, I am sure it will also be very helpful.

Introduction

More than a month ago I promised you I will write about my backpacking experience in China. So, well, let me first introduce you to Su Ying Ying (苏莹莹), the protagonist. As many of you may know, many Chinese decide to have an English name. The same is the case for those that come to China, sooner or later adopt a Chinese name to better adapt to the culture and language. My other me, my Chinese alter ego, decided to go travelling and she learnt much from the experience and I will like to share it with you.
