This photo just won me a new, very Swiss, Swatch.
Okay. It’s nothing much really. Just part of this little photography competition organized by the USI international office for the exchange students. Part of the theme was to (obviously) feature something about Lugano that was especially poignant to us.
This was one of the first photos I shot when we got here, and it was taken on this cobblestone street that leads down to the city centre from the train station. Little did I know then how many times we would scale up and down these steps, backpacks and all, early in the morning and dead in the night as we made our trips to and fro Lugano… just to save CHF$1.10 that we didn’t want to spend taking the funicular up/down to and from the station. So we walked.
Anyhow there aren’t many of us exchange students here, and I don’t know how many people even sent in their photos… but well I’m still happy I have a new Swatch.
(My red Casio’s battery died here by the way, I is sad. But at least I still have my Fossil and now this nice spanking red Swatch.)
It’s preeeetty. And I’d forgotten how loud Swatches tick. It’s sitting in my drawer but when the room is quiet enough I can hear it even when my music is playing. (Okay, given it is a very small room. And I am relatively near the drawer.)
I also have new shoes. Okay. Actually, I have a lot of new many things because I shop quite a fair bit. But today we went to warehouse sale of sorts and I got some nice new shoes for pretty cheap. Shoes were something I hadn’t managed to get since coming here even though I got myself all sorts of other new clothes… till now at least.
Yes I bought heels. But they are grey (officially my new favourite fashion color) and they are very pretty.
Shoes in these parts tend to be REALLY expensive… but the quality is pretty awesome. These are the cheap ones so I’m not expecting a lot from them. After all there’s a reason why Camper shoes cost 99 euros and they definitely walk like they’re worth 99 euros.
Okay, 1am here and we’ve school tomorrow. Toodles.
