Three days spent in cork after my comeback, sun shining almost all the time!! If it s not a record we are close to that I guess!! Meeting people, walking as a tourist in cork, sth I missed while I was here working and enjoying the nightlife. Today it should be the day for a trip to thr fote wildlife park!! There will follow updatings!
A few hours and I ll start my coming back to cork again!! I l stay a week, it should be enough time for hugging all the friends I left there when I took my flight to Italy!! The journey could be long, but I know it will be worth it!!
This time I followed the Irish Student Tour, a trip in the northern Ireland definitely well organized!! Here some photos!
Before coming here I read a lot about the frequent floods that during the year hit Cork City and the County. Tuesday it has been really the classic irish weather, I woke up with the sun shining and in the afternoon I observed the storm battering the city, with a wind-speed around the 90 km/h. However I succeeded in coming back home quietly with my bike, wet but without much effert despite of my weak leg.
So I write the article because first of all I would like in future to remind me when this event happened, to share some photos and to notice how the people of Cork lived the evening. Obviously the city was prepared, sand-bags distributed during the day, population alarmed during the day, the water invaded the city but not so heavily as some years ago, but everything has passed easily and today it was as nothing had actually happened. Well done Corkonians!! I upload some photos, taken real time with wet feet and some links of the main pages that were reporting the story.
In the last post I introduced the new blogger, we wanted to write so many things about the great moments we spent together and with the Erasmus in Cork that finally we produced nothing. The xmas holidays didn’ t help too, absorbed by the coming back in our countries, in our houses with family and friends! We should talk about Galway trip in November, Dublin and the concert of Foy Vance on the 7th of December, the last trip with the German friends in Belfast, north Ireland, the goodbyes that touched us the last week of our staying in Cork and so on. We’ll write soon something about the accomodation to give a kind of orientation for future Erasmus in the living Cork!
For me are the last days in Genoa before going in Cork for the second time. How will it be?
I don’t know, feelings are quite different from the first time. On September everything was new, everything unknown and ready for being discovered. I went there knowing nobody but after two days I was surrounded by people who seemed really appreciate me, enjoying with me. I spent a lot of time with them, we went on trips together around Ireland, we had a ball in Cork even if we were from so many countries, I didn t expect Cork being so international. Now I know that, I know how easy it will be to talk with someone from China or South Africa. At the same time I know how different these months will be. People that are in my heart won’t come back with me and my friend Mehdi, but I am sure will go together through great adventures again.
A second chapter of my Erasmus, my project, my life is beginning soon with this 2014…ready, not intimidated as the first time, but full of curiosity. Everything has to be written, so let’ s start!!
