Let’s begin with this last weekend… The weather is getting better, so it was a perfect weekend to go to the beach. My friends and I were planning to go to Bondi Beach to tan, maybe swim a little, and hike. We grabbed some delicious food, and I was sure to bring my Frisbee with me.

London is an overwhelming city. There is always constant movement and it hard sometimes to take a moment to breathe and collect your thoughts on the experience you are having. I felt this, especially after this orientation week. With the semester now in full swing and within an entirely new culture, I needed to take a bit of a break away from the city.

After taking a walk through Kensington on Thursday, I decided to take a walk through Hyde park as well, which I didn't realize is extremely vast, and could take hours to wander through it in its entirety. So I opted for a short hour walk. The park is a complete environmental switch from the city. It was extremely serene and everyone walking through the park seemed to very much take their time and enjoy the walk within the greens. And people looked at you!

Hello everyone! It's been a week since you've heard from me. I should say that the last week was not very eventful. I was just trying to get into the routine of studying, going to classes, and interning. However, there are still some things I want to reflect on.

Although I've been concentrating on getting back to a school routine, my roommates and I had a chance to explore our neighborhood. As I mentioned before, the apartment is located in a great district right near the heart of Darling Harbor. There are plenty shops and malls within a short walking distance. However, while wandering around recently, we came across a market. The Paddy’s Market is one I would describe as a hidden market under the mall. It has a great variety of small trinkets that a regular tourist might be tempted to acquire: souvenirs, clothing with Australian signs, phone cases, and even mascaraed costumes (which makes me think it is going to be THE place for Halloween shopping).

Something that, as strange as it sounds, never crossed my mind when I planned to study abroad was the fact that I’d be studying at a real college in a real neighborhood. I learned all I could about Dublin, and about CAPA, but only took a passing glance at what the college I’d be studying at and where in the city it is. Lucky for me, I ended up in Portobello, one of the best Dublin neighborhoods to live in. What makes it so great? Despite being residential, Portobello is in the heart of Dublin, a short walk away from some of the best sights, food and shopping in the city. Like any new neighborhood, though, it takes some getting used to.
