First Impressions

First Impressions

My name is Joâo, I am from Oporto, Portugal and I will working @ Indymedia for 6 months.

The first day I wasn't to conviced about Brussels, the weather was to dark and rainy. But as soon I got home, I have started to feel like home. Now is time to fit in!
First two days of at Indymedia and already some nice work to and lots informations to receive and absorve. But with enough time everything will be easy.

Then, I had to spent a week out of Brussels and headed to Ieper, for volunteers camp. During this week all the internatonal volunteers had the chance to learn a bit of Dutch and to learn more about Belgium and its culture. It was a really nice week and the volunteer and staff group were just great. We are allready planning to get together again. You can check all the photos at this link:

The tunnel in Ieper


Dear Joâo,
we are Astrid and Silke, two students who live in Belgium.
In 2009 we'll be in Portugal for 3 months( 03/03/2009 till end of mai 2009).

We're going to stay in Beja (near to Faro).
We're wondering if you can tell us something more about Portugal... Maybe you can tell us things we certainly have to see or do and the things that are not interesting... Maybe you can visit while we're in Portugal and show us around?

I'm sorry for our bad English, and hopefully we'll read your mails soon..

Many thanks!!!!
