I finish the course on Friday so will have a wee bit more time to explore the city again, although I'm intending to do some voluntary work too. I've really enjoyed my first 4 weeks here - can't believe it's that long, although sometimes it feels like I've been away for ages!
Things I've learned:
Drivers are just as crazy as my first impression, although I've seen surprisingly few accidents
The green man has little or no influence on whether a car will drive over a pedestrian crossing, you always have to be on your guard!
Apparently milk can come in a bag - hard to balance in the fridge though! Same goes for yoghurt.
There appears to be no limit to the number of dogs one person will try and walk - see photo!
Kirsty would go mad at the amount of dogs dirt everywhere - it's not particularly nice.
There s a technique to continuing to walk while taking off a jacket and replacing a rucksack when going onto the always roasting subte - I've mostly managed to pick it up!
Dulce de Leche is fantastic (think of the caramel in millionaire shortbread but even better).
Irn Bru can't be found :o(
It's possible to acclimatise very quickly to the weather - last week I found myself putting on a jumper and jacket cos it was only 16 degrees!
