The Tipping Point

I was reading this book and yesterday coming back from Milan by bus I forget it there. 
Anyway I could read more than half book and I can say is quite interesting. I talks about the three rules of epidemics. Margo recommend me this book when we were in the Irish Pub at Tallin.

Amy, we love your music!

Baltic Holidays 2011 (Long Version)

One day in Geneva (Switzerland)

Geneva is a city in Switzerland quite close to Lyon in France, you can go with the TGV the same day and come back. The price of the ticket is cheap, around 50 € and one day is enough to see the important places and to walk around.
First, we went to the international buildings area and we saw the United Nations headquarters, as well as Red Cross and Unicef Headquarters, then we go trow the Botanic Garden and we arrived to the lake.
Geneva is build all around the lake, so we walked besides the lake and then we crossed the bridge and we got to the old town.
The city is quite nice and interesting, I thought it was going to be bigger, but is not that big, you can walk everywhere. One interesting thing that I saw is that there are a lot of Arabian people like in London. You can see a lot of expensive cars.
Is a nice place to go to spend one day and do some sightseeing.

First Impressions of Lyon

Yes! I already went to class yesterday and it was good, because I'm a group of people that more or less have the same level as me... and the teacher was kind of young she was giving us a lot of positive energy.
I don't know yet which places to go around here, well, at the moment there is an excursion to Avignon at the end of the month with the school so I'll try to apply to go there. And then, if I have the change to visit places like that I'll take it, you know, once here...

The city is really pretty! Is a kind of Paris but a little smaller, in the center there are those small streets with those small restaurants with a nice atmosphere, and there are two rivers crossing the city with nice bridges and the views are so nice.

Then, the residence is quite new and quite big! Is not like the one in California that was older and smaller... The rooms are quite small but is enough and there are some kitchens in each floor, yesterdey I went to the kitchen to have dinner, and I talked with a group of young americans, then, they left and a french girl with her mother came to clean some dishes... I think in SF was easier to meet people because we had the breakfast for free and everybody was there at that time, and also because whe shared rooms... Well, we'll see!
