Saudades?! Simmmm, muitas! Como eu gosto de escrever neste espaço!!! Aliás, eu tenho muitas novidades...
Quero começar agradecendo o carinho das pessoas que têm deixado palavras tão carinhosas e de incentivo no espaço reservado aos comentários. Muito obrigada. Waléria, Carol, Rafael, enfim, às outras pessoas também que chegam até a mim expressando amabilidade quanto ao blog, ainda que criticando.
Vou aproveitar também e indicar a todos os meus leitores os serviços prestados pela Carol. Carol é formada em turismo e trabalha em uma agência de viagens. Ela tem me ajudado bastante quando surge alguma dúvida referente ao intercâmbio que pretendo fazer. É uma pessoa muito paciente ( e como!!!), gentil e com uma ética profissional raríssima. Quero deixar claro que ela não me pediu, nem está me pagando nada por isso. Estou fazendo isso porque é o mínimo que posso fazer pela lealdade e amizade que tem me ofertado neste momento tão especial para mim. Tem me ajudado sem esforços a realizar este sonho. Bom, então vamos lá:
O nome dela é: Carolina Oliveira
Empresa a qual trabalha: Anandatour
Telefone para contatos: (21) 2507 -2277
Mudando de assunto, lembram da Mrs. Kate Fine? Pois é, ela não me respondeu mais, contudo, parece que ela tem uma amiga tão próxima a ela... Diria que pensam as duas da mesma forma, a tal ponto de ser inacreditável ( ou será cara-de-pau mesmo?!). Veja só:

E aí, alguma semelhança com o e-mail anterior, ou seja, com o da Kate? Parece até piada! Tem coisas que a gente quase não acredita de tão absurdo!!!
Eu tinha que mostrar isso a vocês... Nem queiram saber a resposta que enviei para ela... Tá bom, vou contar... disse que não poderia aceitar a oferta dela porque a Kate já havia me feito a mesma proposta... Como ironia eu acrescentei " That is a coincidence!" e encaminhei a cópia do e-mail da Kate. Se ela respondeu?! Fala sério, né?!
Tá, mas não acaba por aí... no mesmo instante que envio o e-mail, eu recebo outro. Outra proposta para variar... quase não acreditei, mas vamos lá... :

Gente, eu recebi todos estes e-mails num único dia. Às vezes enche minha paciência ( e minha caixa de e-mails também), mas tenho maior prazer de colocá-los todos aqui para que nenhum de vocês caíam num destes golpes. Vale lembrar sempre: ficar em alerta nunca é demais quando se pensa em ir para o exterior sozinho.
Bom, amigos, estou indo agora...Tenho que terminar um trabalho da facul de dança que está me matando!!!! Até a mais bela rosa tem seus espinhos!
Um beijo e abraços.
