it has taken me some time to get used to …

It has taken me some time to get used to the difference in time here, in fact I still get up at 5 everyday, y la verdad que no esta mal (no puedo usar acentos) levantarse a las 5 y darse un paseillo por Amherst (do not pronounce the “h”), el campus universitario es verde verde y amplio como se ve en esta fotoAmherst Campus

y da gusto darse una vuelta antes de ir a desayunar.

No he tenido mucho tiempo para escribir pero ademas la wifi en la habitacion va muy lenta y eso me obliga a bajar a la sala de ordenadores donde lo unico malo es que me entretengo with the people.

Estoy pasandolo estupendamente por ahora. Los americanos me han sorprendido por su amabilidad y naturalidad. Ya me lo habian contado pero hasta que no lo ves no te lo crees, esa actitud cercana me recuerda a Bernie Dodge que es el americano de quien mas referencia tengo.

As to the group of fulbrighters here, everybody is very peculiar and with a lot of things to tell and share, so I can’t think of a better way to spend this summer. We have been here just for three days and it seems that we know each other for at least a week or two. Jeong Soo (from South Korea) already calls me “my old sister”, Dorothee has become the Japanese reporter of the group (though she is from Democratic Congo) and so on.

I insert here a picture of the group, with formal clothes on Sunday, on our second day here. We are uploading all the pictures at picasa and I can’t imagine how many shots we will have at the end of this wonderful program. There are only a few albums up to now (we are 29) and we’ve been here only for 3 days !!

You can have a look at the rest of them here http://picasaweb.google.com/itd2008group
