Hello! This will be my last blog update. Today was my last workday and tomorrow i will go to the bank for my salary. Then tomorrow i’ll pack my stuffs so it will be ready for saturday when i come back Finland!
well. About this final week. SO BUSY, we have like 1000 people eating so lot of work.
This week we had special decorations because days 21.6, 23,6 and 24,6 we have Sant Juan Ciutadella festivals! I have some photos about these.
I was watching this festival one day. There was like 300 people or more in the streets and following horsemans. The idea of the festival: First horseman takes the Sant juan flag from the balcony and like 50 more horsemans follow this first one. Then people follow these horsemans.
And this is the flag of Sant Juan:
I have to say thanks everybody for making this trip possible for me! This has been so amazing and teaching.
Hello! Two weeks anymore before i go back Finland.
About last week. It has been normal but more busier because 2 days ago the hotel got 100 new tourists. So more and more work coming 🙂
My roommate Lukas went work other place than me so i had to do all the things on my own again. He said me that next week i go to work in another place than salad place, maybe.
Here is some photos about this week:
And this is the beach where I always go after work or day offs.
Cala en Forcat:
I have to say i’m sorry for not writing blog for long time. It’s been really busy because i had to get the NIE number and i got a little problems with that. After NIE number i needed to get my security number so that I can work here in Spain. After all I finally got internet (today) for my laptop.
So about this and earlier week. Couple days ago i got new roommate His name is Lucas and hes from Czech. Hes 18 and he came to work in the same kitchen as I. Hes working in same place as me, so i had to teach him what i have learned. I have been doing other work when he is doing everything what i used to do. I have done everything what my teacher chef Angel tells me to do, like special salads to the buffet. Angel showed me how many clients there will be in this month. This week we have like 500 people for day. After 2 week we will have more like 900-1000 people for day so it will be busier and more work.
I have learned how to do many beautiful decorations. I have couple photos what i have done. And some of them are made by Angel
And this is my funny and casual chef teacher Angel. Believe me, hes a really good teacher. 🙂
So it’s time to tell u about this week here in Menorca.
This week has been kinda same as last week but few things i would like to tell you.
I have been cutting fruits and vegetables as last week but i’m now more own initiative. This week was normal but one day was special because we had one extra buffet for 450 people. We did special salads and very beautiful decorations. Now i also have pictures!
So here is some photos about the extra buffet:
That was really busy day because i had to keep the other 3 buffet up.
About my day offs: I went to Cietadella for shopping and walking. I went to Cietadella’s cathedral. It was so beautiful out- and inside.
Only internet i have in the hotel is free 30 min wifi so it’s really hard to write a blog or talk with friends sometimes. But there is one bar with free internet just 2 min walk from the hotel. The owner is so funny and kind. He has been saving my days when i needed to use internet 🙂
Hello there. The First week here in Menorca, Spain. I arrived at the hotel Almirante Farragut last Sunday and the staff took me very well received. They showed me my room and i got rest of the day free so i checked the area little bit.
Monday morning i went to the kitchen and chef named David gave me my kitchen clothes and some other advises. The first days i have been helping with the salads. I’ve done many kind of salads, but mostly vegetable and fruit cutting for the buffet.
After work i have been mostly walked and circlet the area, beaches and shops.
Wednesday morning I went to police station to get my NIE number, but I need to complete an application that I can get it.
