Outside of here I've published my first book. It's called Lo scrittore di lapidi (which would sound something like The tumbstone writer in english).

Obviously it's written in Italian, so I fear most posters here won't be able to read it. My italian mates will be able to get it from here: http://www.edizionilagru.com/lo-scrittore-di-lapidi

Can't say I'm making a career out of it at the moment, but it feels good :)
Whoa! Congratulations mate :cool:

It's time to stop caging responsible adults who choose to use the relatively safe, extremely popular God-given plant everywhere else too.

Well it's the beginning of a new adventure for me.

First I am going to Madrid for a week, to do research at the National Library. Despite my field of studies I have only been there once for a weekend, so I am excited to get to know the city a little better. Besides my work, my plans so far include the Museo Reina Sofía, the Cortes and the Casa Lope de Vega. I am also planning to do a day trip to Toledo and visit the Alcazar.

After that it's a short stopover in Lisbon and straight to Praia, the capital of Cabo Verde. I will be spending three months there doing an internship. I have no idea what to expect, it will be the first time for me to Cabo Verde, and Africa in general. But I am happy to be able to go and I'm sure it will be an exciting time. While I am there I am hoping to explore the island that I am on (Santiago), and also some of the other islands. I also want to take classes to learn Creole, partly for fun, but also as a way to get to meet people and be able to communicate on a basic level.

I have no idea what the internet situation will be like, but I probably will have to cut down my time on the forum a bit. Watching races will probably be impossible. I have read someone's blog online who went mountain biking in Cabo Verde and wrote about it. He said you need to have a good sense of orientation and be sure to bring enough water. I obviously won't bring a bike, but I'll definitely look for a company that may be offering guided tours and rental bikes.

Cheers,

Christian

That's fascinating Christian! I hope you have lots of fun and enjoy this new adventure of yours. Hopefully by the end of your stay you will get slightly better weather and spend some quality time on the beaches. But above all, good luck and good working. Don't forget to visit Sal.

Cheers! :)
 
I know you don't know me, but best of wishes and fun on your travels, Christian!

And about those rental bikes... if they start making some sort of funny noises I trust you'll know how to fix them! :)


(Outside of here I fix funny noises on my bike(s), they make me extremely nervous.)
