So.. One month has gone by and i really like it here, the weather is always good and the people are very kind. The first two weeks were kind of slow, because i needed some time to adjust to this new lifestyle, i didnt really do anything except eat, sleep and go to work.
Im working at a company called Medori electricidad, all of the guys there are great, they dont really speak english that much except the boss and this one german guy, Arved that i have been working with. So far i have done pretty basic stuff, like pulling cables and making cable routes, addin a few plug lines and switches. Like for example, last week we had to put a new main line to someones house
Also there was a case where we had to go to this wood wholesale place where they had a huge woodcutting machine giving a amlfuction code and wouldnt let the machine run, so we had to fix it by calling the german manufacturer for information about the machine.
There was also a pretty large fire in here, it was some kind of a “forest” or a field under natural protection, there was a lot of people filming it, heres a few photos
on our free time we have visited a lot of beaches and coffee shops, we also went to Ibiza town to check out some shops for some souveniers and to check out the harbor in there, theres also the “old town” which is absolutely beautiful with its old buildings and Dalt Vila today we went to visit the local school which was a lot like our school in some ways, the students there were a few years older than me but i already made friends. They gave us a small tour of the campus area and made us some traditional spanish snacks. they all seemed wonderful, they were polite and very social. We talked a lot about the island and finland and places to visit if they ever come to finland etc, etc.
I like all the people in here very much because they are the exact opposite of a “traditional finnish person”. I dont think i have met anybody so far who wouldnt talk to me, even when i go to the store i always get to talk a lot with the guy who owns the shop, or for example when i went to order coffee from a coffee shop and of course i was trying to order it in spanish and i said it somehow wrong, then the coffee guy spent like legit 7 minutes teaching me how to order it correctly in spanish and explaining how i said it slightly wrong, it was hilarious. Its a shame im starting to get used to the coffee here, at first it was so sweet and creamy and yuck and if you ordered the coffee black, it came in a half a shot glass and tasted like death. Its gonna take me a long time to get used to the taste of finnish coffee again.
I really like it in here, i hope the next 4 weeks will be just as enjoyable as these past wekks have been
