Jewelry Course : Fourth Report (week1)

During my lunch time I eat at home or out, it depend how much time and how much hungry I am. I’m just a little tired about pasta so I prefer to make something at home something like my country food. I really don’t like to cook much but here I’m improve to do home food. In the market I find some food almost ready to make, so it’s much more easy.

When I lived in my first apartment I had the supermarket COOP so close at home I went almost every day, now I live far away from that super market so I can’t go every day but its fine because I go to that store probably one a week.

Here in Florence I can walk all day, everything it’s so close!. I feel like I’m leaving in a city without people, and Florence is a city where you find have a lot of tourists . When I walk in the street I feel walking in a museum. In my country, where I live I have to take a transportation or drive because everything is far away.

In my independent study I do homework. And also I am studying extra hard outside of the school because I want to improve and be the best.

Durante mi almuerzo yo como en casa o afuera, dependo de cuánto tiempo y cuánta hambre tengo. Estoy un poco cansado de la pasta y de los sanduches, así que prefiero hacer algo en casa, algo mas como comida país. Realmente no me gusta cocinar mucho, pero aquí estoy aprendiendo y mejorando para hacer la comida de casa. En el mercado hay comida casi lista y facil de preparar asi que no tomo mucho tiempo cocinando.

Cuando vivía en el primer apartamento, tenía el supermercado COOP cerca a casa iba casi todos los días, ahora que vivo lejos el supermercado no es tan cerca así que no puedo ir siempre, he optado por ir una vez a la semana.

Mi vida aquí en Florencia ha cambiado bastante, ahora camino todo el día, para ir a todas parte ya que está tan cerca todo y no es necesario tomar autobus o carro. Me siento como una ciudad sin gente, sin turistas, libre para caminar y conocer en cada paso que doy. Esta ciudad es como un museo sin entrada, puedes conocer, visitar, aprender y re-aprender cada dia que pasa. Siempre quise estudiar en esta ciudad, donde el arte, la arquitectura y el diseño esta en todo lado. Esta es la ciudad de grandes maestros del arte, que con sus conocimientos nos han permitido apreder bastante de ellos.
Mi pais es muy distinto a esta ciudad, no hay punto de comparacion, en mi pais no hay tanta gente como aqui y las distancias no son tan cortas. Lo que extraño de mi pais es mi familia, amigos y mi vida alla, pero se que ahora esta en mi nuevo hogar y lo sera por mucho tiempo.

Mi vida en Florencia
