09.08.2009 - Wanganui Beach

Yesterday I made a bike tour with Aman. We went to the Wanganui Beach. Sounds better than it is because the beach seems to be a dirty waste land. :-)

Nethertheless we had fun and it also was a quite nice day. The bike I used was really old but it took me to the beach and back again.

01.08.2009 :: Having some time for myself... at last!

After 2 weeks of setteling in and working on projects at UCOL I had time for myself for the first time here. This slot of time I used to go to the seaside with students colleges for a couple of hours by doing a camp fire, going up and down the shore and being impressed by the pacific sea. It was the same feeling of being once with all around like I had when I was first time at the Mediterranean sea.
A day after I went through Wanganui by collecting impressions of the city and having an afternoon out on the tiles. I haven't done that for so long time...

20.07.2009 - First day in School

Today was our first real day in school. We went there in the morning to finally fix the enrolment issues and to get our student id cards.

The first course was “Typography in Motion” at 1 o’clock. It was not what I expected but I think the course could be much cool. Courses or “Classes” last here 3 hours with a small break during the lesson.

At 4 o’clock P.M. was “Advanced 3D Modeling” our second and last course for today. I think I am starting to like AutoDesk Maya – the software we are using - again, because the lecture – Michael Wong – is quite good.

15.07.2009 :: Scouting Wanganui Area

We've been here vor estimated 2 hours and met two guys from USA at Close Quarters (where we live) with whom we started an exploration tour through Wanganui Area.

The two guys called Sam and Jeff are nice ones but typical americans: they belive that in 1969 americans were really on moon and they didn't know that Budweiser is a Czech beer.... oh dear!

Our tour stopped about 3km outside the city at Virginia Lake which is perfect vor jogging and angering swans. Absolutely beautiful although it's winter... by +10°C .
