time goes by..

Its only three weeks left and then I`ll be back in snowy Finland. I`ve been watching pictures from Helsinki from the net and it looks like every winter=cold. One week ago it was funny, but now when I`m thinking that I`ll be standing in the snow so soon, well, it is just not that funny anymore.

What have I learnt and expirienced here in Barcelona? What will I miss? What I would like to take with me back home? These are the things I can think now.

-Few spanish prhases

-I've mad few very good and close friends

-I think I`ve improved my english : )


-Streetlife in Spain is beautiful, there is nothing like that in Finland (maybe because of the weather..)

-Cafe con leche, I WILL MISS YOU

-Döner el Raval, döner con pollo, nam.

-Siesta, it should be compulsory in every European Unions country (they make lot of directives there, maybe siesta could be the next one?)

Barcelona is a BIG city for a (stupid) finnish girl like me and only thing I'm missing here is the fresh air and quiet moments. I think this also has got to do something with my apartment, there are 4 to 8 people living depending on the week. hm.

What about Erasmus then.. I think most of my feelings are positive about Erasmus, though the subjects we`ve had, how should I put this.. Well, Let`s say that now I know I really don`t want to study tourism. : )

If there is something I could change maybe it would be the visits. I would have been very happy if my 200€ would have been used into nice dinner outside of the town and maybe if they would have taken us to a small catalan places nearby. YES, I understand that we are in tourism school and that we need to see tourist attractions but why the same tourist attractions that ALL the tourists go anyway?? Tell me, please.

I must say I was very surprised that we had no games or waht so ever in the beginning that we could have get to know better each other. And sad but true I felt that in some point the spirit in our class was almost unbearable.. I think it could have been avoided by simple getting know each other games and maybe a small party outside of the school organized by school.


Still most valuable things you get from Erasmus are not the school or the place you live, not even the city you are in, but the whole expirience of living independently abroad and meeting new people and get to know their habits. That is something you cannot get by watching tv in your home sofa.

This turned to be very open letter, but HEY, that`s me. : )

I`ve had GREAT time here and I wouldn`t change a day, or maybe a few, but not too many. I`m definetely going to enjoy the last weeks and I hope everybody else does the same thing.

I also found your comments interesting about the ice-breaking games at the beginning - you should make a point of putting them on the evaluation forms you give to Marta at the end of the course. I know that there have been more of these things organised in previous years, and the programme changed this year, meaning that some things were lost (such as the games you mention) - it would be useful for you to say something on the final evaluation form about this, and the other things you mention here (the visits, for example)

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
