In my Home (Bedroom) at last!!

Just wanted to share, before going to sleep, that I've finally moved to my bedroom! =) I have been staying in the place of a cousin of a friend of mine and his room mate. So before anything else I would like to thank João Afonso and Dago Galan for being so nice and giving me a shelter for the last two weeks! =)

My new bedroom is in a shared house. I will be living for (at least) the next six months with two girls and one boy. Actually the boy will move out in the end of December, but he will be replaced by a friend of him. Nevertheless it will still be two girls and a boy.

I've only met two of them, but they seem really nice.

The house is also really cool! It has a big garden in the back, which will look even cooler in the Spring/Summer. It has a big kitchen and a cosy living room. My bedroom is large enough and has a small office attached to it, which is great to host any visitors that might come to Cambridge! =)

I think I will enjoy living here! =) Hope you find the time to visit me!

PS: I almost forgot to mention that from my house to my work is a 12 minutes walk! Which means... more time to sleep! =D And that is a really nice feature!=)

PPS: I also forgot to mention how good it is to move to the place where I will live. Where I will build my space. I came to The UK on the 11th or 13th of October and since then I have basically camped in different places. In my friends Manel's (and his really nice house mates) house, in a small hotel in London, and then in João and Dago's place. I also spent some nights in a B&B in London and some other nights in my girlfriend's college in Cambridge. I must thank very much to everyone that helped me. If you need a place to stay, now I have one to give! =)

One week has passed! =)

After one week working at UNEP-WCMC I must say that I'm really enjoying it! =) I spent the first week doing some tutorials and watching screencasts to get to know better the framework with which I will be working, which is ASP .NET MVC 2.

The people there are very friendly and the overall environment is great! =) They even have a team that plays football every Wednesday at lunch time which I will be sure to join ASAP! =)

But it won't be this week, because from Monday to Wednesday I will be in London to attend to some training in ASP .NET! =) Which I think it will be really cool! =)

I must add that I'm really enjoying Cambridge and that I found the city to be really nice. The weather is not as bad as I thought that it would be, it doesn't rain TOOOO much, but it is quite cold... But the thing that bothers me the most is the sunset time, at 16h the sun is almost gone! But could be worst. =)

I'll try to write some more stuff later! =)
