Día 3 – REPORT FROM WALES
Hi! Time is going away really quickly, I feel really comfortable in Manchester. I have been around here for almost two months now and I don’t haven’t feel any homesick yet, with the what’s up and Skype it is really easy to keep in touch with your people though.
I have been doing some tourism around wales this week, it is stunning. I went to the south of wales, to a city in the seaside, Swansea. Also if it is a big city I went to the outskirts of the city so I was sleeping in a cottage that was surrounded by farms and forest. It was really nice get in touch with the countryside, I did enjoy long walk through the forest and trough amazing cliffs just beside the sea. I try another fish and chips, and this one was much more tasty also if I got it from a fast food place. I also went to a very nice Indian restaurant and I really enjoy it. Here the Indian food is very popular they cook a lot of curry.
In wales I also could visit a friends brother organisation called down to earth, that organized adventure activities, and that it is also focus on eco-building and learning through the outdoors in south Wales. They have an amazing land with wood buldings on it which are amazing and they do a lot of activities to bring people close to the wild life around them and also to show them how they can be more eco and enjoy it.
AH! And I had my first English breakfast with beans, sausages, toasts and eggs. It was tasty and I like to start the day with a big meal.
