very touching

On the Luce

The Charles Bridge – or Karlův Most – is one of Prague’s most iconic, and busiest, sights. Built in the late 14th century, it was the only way to get across the Vltava River for nearly 500 years.

Fresco Deco of Dambulla

great pictures

What an Amazing World!

Suresh drives the old minivan with a constant speed, en route to Anuradhapura. It is still hours away from noon, yet I have already felt so sleepy. Suddenly Suresh talks to me while pointing his finger at a rugged landscape to my left. “The cave temple is up there,” he says. “We will go there after going back from Anuradhapura.” I nod while trying to read some shop signs on the road side to find out where we are ─ still with the sleepy eyes. Finally I manage to read some Latin words among intricate Sinhalese and Tamil letters and learn that we are somewhere near the town of Dambulla.

I did not know a lot about Dambulla prior to arriving at this island nation. But it was a picture of the interior of the cave which I saw at a tourist information office at Colombo Fort train station that…

Bonne et mauvaise nouvelle… / Good News and Bad News

Cela fait un moment que je n’ai rien publié. J’ai dû en effet mettre mon projet de volontariat en veille.

Les raisons ?

Une tonne de paperasse à venir à bout

Un nouveau boulot à trouver

Et surtout, il ne faut pas oublier que c’est les vacances. Je me suis donc octroyée un petit break).

Résultat des courses :

J’ai trouvé un nouveau travail ce qui m’oblige à repousser les 2 semaines de volontariat en Inde. Je pense pouvoir partir en septembre/octobre 2013.

Vu la vitesse à laquelle les choses avançaient c’est peut être pas plus mal.

 

 

It’s been a while since I posted something but I had to put my project in sleep mode.

Why ?

A lot of paperwork to deal with

A new job to look for

And more important, let’s not forget it’s vacation time. Therefore I decided to take a few days off.

 Bottom line:

I found a new job and now I have to postpone my volunteer work trip to India. I think I can reschedule it for September or October 2013.

Not a bad thing if you consider how slow this project goes.

Une petite pause/Taking a break

Tout est dans le titre.

Je perds pied face à cette montagne de paperasse, mais je ne peux plus remettre ça a plus tard. Une petite pause le temps de tout régler.

All is said.

I am drowning under paperwork but I really cannot delay anymore. Just a lil break to deal with all this.

Post de remerciement/Thank you Post

Hourra !!!

Ma tirelire pèse un peu plus lourd, pour cela je tiens à remercier les personnes suivantes pour leur « généreuse » contribution :

–          @EdEdd – 50 euros et je dis supprime 5 de mes amis qu’il « déteste » sur Facebook.

–          @MamieJeaninne – 200 euros, sans rien me demander en retour. Voilà un beau geste totalement désintéressé.

–          @MarylineTientsin – pour une promesse de don de 100 euros, si je tiens 1 semaine sans fumer. Dure semaine en perspective.

 

Hurray!!!

My piggy bank is getting heavier and I’d like t to thank the following persons for their generosity:

–          @EdEdd – 50 euros, to unfriend 5 people he hates on Facebook.

–          @MamieJeaninne – 200 euros, and she didn’t ask for anything in return. A totally selfless gesture.

–          @MarylineTientsin – who promised me 100 euros if I quit smoking for a week. It’s gonna be a hard week.

Traitement ou pas/Treatment or no treatment???

Pour certains, le traitement antipaludéen est inutile. Qu’en pensez-vous ?

Some people think the antimalarial treatment is useless. What do you think?
