De vuelta a los cerros!

Después de unas semanas un poco tristes, me subió el ánimo y volví a los cerros.

La semana que recién termina fue bastante emocionante y agitada. Las clases de español ocupan bastante de mi tiempo y energías, no obstante son muy gratificantes. Mis lecturas y estudios continúan desafiando mi ignorancia y arrogancia. El viernes hice mi primera presentación acerca de mi investigación, estaba ansiosa, todo resultó muy bien. Me alegró haber hecho la presentación y me dío nuevos bríos. La guinda de la torta de esta semana fue la caminata de ayer, fuimos al Parque Namadgi a menos de una hora de Canberra, caminamos 20 kms y subimos el Mt Tennent. Los paisajes son muy hermosos, pese al calor, disfruté mucho este bushwalk.

    My husband and I walked 15 kilometers last Sunday, just for fun.!:)

    It is indeed the best exercise one can practice if one chooses a healthy life style, as we had.

    I didn’t know you were in Australia, how long will you be there?
    I didn’t know you were teaching Spanish: Good for you. !

    Enjoy the “journey”

    Hola Berta,

    yeah I have been here in Canberra since last October , i.e, 7 months ago. I’m doing my PhD here, so I’ll be in Canberra for three years.
    I’m also teaching Spanish to the undergraduates At ANU, it’s really good for me so I can see differences and similarities with the Chilean context, students,resources and the teaching experience per se as well. So far, so good!

    I’m happy here, I am working hard and my life quality has improved. I spend my weekends bushwalking as you could read.

    Congratulations on your walk! I guess Canada is great for walking.

    Thanks a lot for your comments,
