Week 13

After my long lasting holiday, I've finally returned to school desk and started my last course here as an exchange student. The course is about Sustainable Natural Resource Management and it's actually pretty close to the degree that I'm studying at my home university. 

Nevertheless, the course contents is totally different from the one that I've had in my uni, that was also called Natural Resource Management. But there's still a lot of similarities between these two and I believe that through this new one I'll get plenty of new information about Natural Resources all around the world. 

During the course we will debate and discuss (among other things) about the interactive connections between Sustainability and Natural Resources. 

We had this dinner for international students in one day in our campus, and it was held in potluck style. So, that everyone that came there, came with some dish from their home country. Most of the dishes were from Asia, Germany and Spain because of that simple reason that most of the students come from those places. But all the food was amazing and really delicious! Thank you all for your efforts! 

Then we have finally find the best fika place in the city. It's the most cozy one, and as usual (but only here in Sweden) you'll get a free refill when you take a regular coffee. It's the perfect place to hang out with your friends 'cause there you can sit for hours and it feels like you're at your own place. 

Then my homies from Finland came to see me! Group of ladies who are one of my dearest friends <3 I had been waiting for them ever since I saw them during my holiday.  

We had a lot of fun and I shew them some culture things such as the castle, cathedral and few museums. 

At some point we started to feel hungry and ended up in Chinese restaurant for lunch. That food was so yummy! Chicken in peanut-butter-sauce, sushi and vanilla ice-cream with fruits for dessert.

Trip to Tallinn

So, my weekend in Tallinn with around 200 other students. At the moment I'm not feeling like a storyteller or anything that would even refer to that, so I'll just put a lot of pictures for you to watch. But photos tells you so much more than words, so everyone feel free to make up your own thoughts about our trip.  

First after spending a whole day in a boat (returning from Finland to Stockholm) it wasn't that tempting to go and repeat it, but even so the trip was excellent. We had a lot of fun and again a great chance to getting to know new people. 

Our friends were basic tourists, reading the map in the middle of the intersection. 

The best shop ever!!

When we got to Tallinn we had the whole day time to explore the city and do what ever we wanted to. Only thing we had to remember was to get back to the boat on time :D 

And the first thing we did when we stepped on the soil of Estonia was to find some nice place to buy coffee 'cause the night on the boat was pretty wild and we didn't have a chance to sleep as much as usually. But we're still feeling pretty great and refreshing, and ready to find out all the things that Tallinn had to offer to us.   

So as you can already see (and also probably assumed), we went to the Old Town and just walked around so that we could see as many of the beautiful sights and places. The old part of the city was awesome with all the colorful buildings and life marks from the past. More or less it was really small so it didn't take so much time to walk around it. And 'cause we had plenty of time we walked some of the streets more than once. 

The city was full of souvenir shops! No matter where you looked or where you went, there're at least one place always near. Just wondering that how can they all be successful and earn their living. 

We're so glad to see the flag of Sweden - After all we're almost Swedish ;D
