Well, if you need any help with that final year's work, just give me a call. =)
Portugal is a really nice country, I would be suspicious if didn't say such thing. Oporto is near from where I live, it's just marvelous. Lots of history, great hotels, and the nightlife... 5*
Algarve is beautiful, but is more about beach and nightlife... On summer, Algarve is always filled with British. Have you never heard of it?!!
Well, there are two authors I can recommend you. José Saramago and José Rodrigues dos Santos. The first one is my favourite author, there's this book, Death With Interruptions (http://www.shelfari.com/books/3984832/Death-with-Interruptions) that is, without any doubt, the best book I have ever read. Give it a try. It's a little ambitious because he writes in a very peculiar way.
My other suggestion is José Rodrigues dos Santos that is pretty much, the portuguese Dan Brown. I've read a few, O Sétimo Selo(http://www.shelfari.com/books/4238880/O-S%C3%A9timo-Selo) is one of the best.
What can I say things have been crazy at work but I'll survive, I guess I'm stronger than I like to think. Been trying to learn the french accent and to to read in french, but still I've a long way 'till people can start calling me "frenchy". I'm already thinking about learning german next.
Well, like I said I'd love to help you, but I'm no expert in what you are looking for. So I've talked to a girl friend of mine, she majored history in college, and she agreed in passing her email to you so you can ask her whatever you may need. She would be glad to help. She sent me an email earlier with some content you might think interesting. I'll send that you! Gotta go lunch. Till next time. Hope things are super with you.
I'm glad to hear you're ok. Sounds like you've been busy in the meantime... Wish I could tag along. I'm sorry I didn't read His Dark Matirials sooner, I just loved... I'm not ashamed to say that I only got to know this series because of the movie. Even though that sucked big time, it made me want to know more about it.
About helping you with your university work you can just ask it away. It would be a pleasure to help, besides I got a friend who majored in History so I can ask her as well. You wrote you'd be away so will be in touch. You know where to reach me... Have fun!
It's been a long time. I don't know if you went to Mexico like you say you would, if you did, well... how was it? Anyway, I'm writing 'cause I've been reading some crazy stuff that's being on all over England. I thought I'd check to see if you were all right.
Hey Charlie, how you've been? I'm really happy about my french lessons, I've started them last month and I am loving them. Right now there are so many books I'd like to read and so many of them is more like a second reading (even seventh time) that I think I'll put Nietzsche on hold, I'm sorry, but I haven't been out for while. No movies, no restaurants, no rest on carnaval holliday (but that's ok i don't like carnaval)... I'm trying to save some money so that maybe in a near future I can buy my own place to live. Big plans and lots of books to fill in my time and my head. So not so many sad thoughts... for now. My mother is trying to get me to date, but I think it's fate that I'll just be single and raise dogs for personal happiness. But enough of me. Tell about me about you? Anything you'd like to share? I hope you're doing great 'cause last time you seemed a bit down...
