ON THE PROJECT
L O R C A : HACKERS OF LIFE, M U R C I A , H O W I S ?
Well, it’s a city that is different from ours in Italy. I found myself almost in a desert, but the city is fantastic. A bit deserted, but in the evening it was quiet, the castle at night is also beautiful. By day it is a city inhabited and quite busy, but also very suggestive for taking some por- traiture photos. I would go back just for that!
To be honest, it is a city that leaves nothing, even if it is in a desert. As I said I would go back, to take more photos, to visit it for good. I love exploring the world and this landscape is fantastic: especially from above the castle. I love this city, so much! I say no more, but it is a wonder with my eyes closed!
Why not come back? People are wonderful too! it was my most exciting erasmus project of the previous one. And I must say that I would come back again just for the people I met.
This experience has changed me positively. It allowed me to open up a lot with others. From here I improved some photographic techniques and video shooting. I have honed friendships with many of the Spanish participants and those from other countries. it is one of the most beautiful experiences abroad undertaken by me. Of course, being in English at any moment is not easy, but I did it! And very well. More than I was hoping for. What has changed me? A lot, from the fact that I am now happier, not only for having found many people who appreciate me, but also from the fact that I now love myself more. And I know it wasn’t so nice to see yourself in the mirror before. But now it’s become more beautiful, and I’m proud of myself. Everyone is what he is, and must be accepted for who he is.
Thanks go to Pedro and Max for making this experience unforgettable and unique. Thanks guys, you have been very smart!
