27th January

Today, at morning we met at the UL, in the Language centre. We had classes like everyday and we’ve been told to make a movie, and the groups were selected by the teacher, some students convinced her to put some together. Then the teacher told us to discuss about the script, characters and the scenes, after 45 minutes discussing we went into another classroom in the building with other foreign students, in the class they were 8 French people, 2 Spanish, 1 Japanese, and an Arabic person, All of them, studying English, we talked about Irish people and costumes and we arranged a soccer match at Sunday. Later we met an Irish student, we asked her some questions and we got back in the classrooms to compare ideas. After the lunch we, like at 3:00pm we waited for the bus 45 minutes and after 1 hour trip we arrived to Limerick centre. There Fernando gave me and Eugenia our Photo tasks, which included from hugging random people to “Kill Each Other”. Our group got divided, some people gone to see a politician, others went shopping, and others just walked around asking for strange pictures (Me!). In the centre everything (except mobiles) was cheap. Afterwards almost everyone was angry because we couldn’t buy nothing the sportswear it’s extremely cheap.
After the time lapse we’ve been given we had to go back to the agreed corner, just in front the clock shop we were amazed about the prize, and I repeat, extremely angry. We had the dinner together after Fernando advised our families, after dinner we took the bus back to the UL for a spiritual session with African drums with what I prefer to call “Hippie”, in which we played drums, following the hippie and having fun, untill everything got to “Religious”, they switched all the lights and they were sending the dead drumer spirit to the “Heaven”. That was pretty extreme for all of us. After the spiritual session, we entred in “the Stable” a local pub in the UL, where the Manchester United was playing against the Manchester City, a soccer classic, it was the “Rematch” the Man. City had an adventage, but in the last 2 minutes, 7 minutes after the tie of the Man. Utd. In the last 3 minutes, the manchester united did the victory goal and the pub gone crazy with beer and drunk irish people everywhere, after this incredible experience, the ones who could, joined me on my journey back to home.
