Hi, everybody! I am Anaclara from Brazil taking my masters here at UoS at Sustainable Architecture.
Well, as you know, Easter holidays has now arrived and it is time to rest, update our studies and
maybe get to know a new country around Europe. But it was even more special: parents decided to
come! My folks not always like to go out their home and travel. This time they could make space in
their routine to visit me on behalf of my birthday on the 22nd March.
My parents at
the Arts Tower, Peace Gardens and the Moor Market.
One week was the time available for them. Lots of places to
visit, things to show and stuff to talk… I missed them very much. For
preparation, I obviously cleaned my room and planned a special tour around the
city. My aim was to show them the University of Sheffield`s facilities, the
Botanical Gardens, the city centre and of course my place. Meanwhile, I also
planned a trip to Edinburgh that I wanted to visit for ages.
Edinburgh trip: the train station, my father trying a kilt and at St. Gile`s Cathedral.
Besides their already expected complaints about cleaning my place, everything was great. Very
emotional, but great. The one day tour I planned around Sheffield lasted 3 days and we didn`t
finished it. And I guess Edinburgh was too cold for them, so my mother got sick on the first day there.
In the end, now they are gone I think I miss them even more but at least I got my Brazilian food stock
full. : )
