In the library

And here we are. Or better I am here where are you? Well today it is not really sunny so I decided to work a little bid on my project. And I recognized, damn thelib2re are some others who had the same idea then me.

But I am prepared I have enough money for the coffee machine and I have enough money to by me a beer afterwards. Well why not. I think I don’t have the opportunity in my live to life in a city which where thousands of students are located. Yesterday I missed the COIMBRA night runners. So that is a task for the next week. At the moment I am preparing myself for the presentation tomorrow where we will present our idea about MACAO.

MACAO was given to the Portuguese people from the Chinese emperor in the exchange of knowledge and to establish a route where the goods and materials can come to Europe by the sea. Here is a WIKIPEDIA article where you can get further information’s about. You can also change the language, if you want. lib1

Good night and good luck, Christian

Streets of Coimbra #streets

 

And sometimes, there is what we call the weekend. But when the weekend begins, the streets of Coimbra are still there. When the sun has gone, they city does not sleeps. Especially on Thursday. This seems the day where all of the student’s are going out. And I? I am exploring the city in the night, here are some expressions about it.

If you are planning to go to Coimbra I would suggest that you begin your journey on Wednesday and stay over the weekend. You can begin to explore the city and after all, you can join the nightlife. I am still watching and exploring how this would be for the next few weeks.

Good night and good luck Christian

Summer is here #Portugal #summer

Well the sun has discovered that I am in Portugal and until Monday it is really nice her. It is perfect, when you wake up and the sun is coming out, well that sounds like living. The other things are also going well. Yes we have some things to discuss about our project, but I look forward that we can solve the problems. Sometimes we had some really hot discussions, but that is how lifes goes on. In this week I was able to run for the first time in Portugal. It is really difficult, because I have to run up and down and up and down.. and as my FITBIT says I am doing more than 100 floors the day. So here are some pictures and impression about Coimbra.

GAME DAY #Académica #Coimbra #Football

Well every town needs his own football club. And Coimbra has the ACADEMIA. To be honest I don`t know much about the club, but I know that I am now living in COIMBRA and so I need a team. And as I have proven in Austria I am not the glory hunter like others. When you look on the standings you could see COIMBRA is not the leading club and maybe his name is not so glorious like Porto, Benfica or Lissabon. But how cares, you belong to the team of your heart and your heart is where you life or where you have a connection with.

They played well today, finally it was a dram they had their chances, but in minute 70 a penalty killed the dreams. I was really impressed on my left side there was an old lady shouting out some portugese words I have never heard and so I have no idea what she was talking. It was awesome. First of all I thougt, good it is a raining sunday afternoon, why not try to watch the game. But I am excited and I can’t wait for the next matches. I am looking forward for the next match. Thank you ACADEMICA, you made my day. 🙂

One coffee please #coffee #portugal

Good Morning!

What do you need when you are starting into the day. Well from my point of view I can say things have changed over the few weeks. Well first of all, I start my day with a breakfast , almost muesli with fresh oranges. Yes oranges are here on every tree. But everydayi go to the local marked and by some from the farmers. Remember what I have told you before, it is a kind of respect, to talk with the people here in Portuguese. But that is another story. After the breakfast I go to my favorite coffee. I call it the factory, it is opposite the Academia Association and it sever, for me, the best coffee in town. I also like the stuff there and they know who I am. I think the factory has it`s focus on a bar in the evening, but I will use it for my coffee brake. This picture was made with a little bit of luck and after uma maja de leite. 🙂

What happens on the weekend. Well I will go to support the local football team. Maybe they need some desperate fans to support they way the play. I have no idea if I will know somebody, but I will by a ticket in the fan sector. Why not. If you are a fan from GAK nothing can stop you. In fact if this, I wish you a perfect day.

Good night and good luck

Great view, but really old buildings

Well the next picture is also a good one. It has that touch of Austria in the 1980 or something. But ti be honest, and this seems to be my new word, Coimbra is really really cool. I have never seen a city where everyone cares about the other. It may be true, that Portuguese are different, but they are really helpful. My weak knowing of the Portuguese language is also not very helpful, but I am trying. And at the moment I am on a level, where I can order drinks and food, find my way to the university and some other small skills. It is a long time since I have thought about learning a new language or livei n a land where you don`t speak the language. Well that it is a challenge, but nevertheless it is a funny think to talk with “hands and feeds”. But I am really exited about the wireless connections here in and around Coimbra. It was hard and there are still some areas unexplored, but nowi think I know all the passwords and Wifi`s from the university to my home.

No I haven’t hacked them it was only a matter of coffee & beer drinking. In fact you get the passwords, when you are a guest in the bar. SO hopefully they will not change the keys. But I am really impressed about the capacity of the EDUROAM wireless. The universities and their faculties are located around the hills and not concentrated in the middle of the old town. But, the wireless is working really fine. Don`t be shocked about the pictures, if you come to Coimbra you will love this wonderful town.

See you soon, good night and good luck.

Wednesday

Well it is going well in Portugal, the first steps have been made and it is time to think about what is happening the next few days. First of all, it was a wonderful weekend with my first run arround the Mondego river. Well it was really cool, as you know Coimbra is covered by over a few hundreds of steps so it is really fascinating to climb then on over the days. I have classes twice a week and I am awaiting the warmer weather to learn in to pure nature. Well maybe there is another ding, I want to feel the sun as soon as possible. It is true that the weather here is warmer, but not so much as suspected As I told you before, when you come to Portugal in Feb, be prepared for really cold winds. Well after the class I always go to the Cantina, this is one of my favorite thing. Because it reminds me of my military service. Standing in a line, and awaiting your meal. But to say it clear it was a always a great event to get some of the famous “Gulaschsuppe”. To be honest, what I eat here is not really definable. But it is a soup, with a meal and hey, you get bread also. And this to a price about 2,30€. And if you see the “Warteschlange” you can image that some of my colleagues likes it to.

Btw. it seem it is always wednesday… well good night and good luck
