This past Sunday we went on a little tour of the town and it reminded me a lot of my hometown in Mexico, although I don’t think my hometown has as much history as Córdoba. It was interesting for me to see with my own eyes all of the places that I learned about last semester. I was in the city of three cultures, looking at the differences in architecture and the history behind it. It was no longer a picture from a book or a PowerPoint slide, but it was right in front of me.
Although classes have started at the Facultad, I have yet to attend any course. These next two weeks are shopping period and none of us are registered in any UCO course. Up to yesterday I was confused as to how the UCO courses will work, so while classes started on Monday, I have not gone to any yet. But I will tomorrow! PRESHCO courses start on Thursday, and I will have only one to attend. But again, we are all still shopping around for courses and we are quite clueless as to which class would be the best fit for us. I am a little nervous about the direct matriculation courses because they will be taught in a different way than what I am used to, but the course I will be taking sounds interesting to me. It was basically the only course that sparked an interest in me so I am hoping that it is not as bad because I don’t want to look for another course and take one that I am not interested in taking. The PRESHCO courses, however, all sound great and if I could, I would take most of them… but I won’t because I am not that crazy.
This is an adventure that has just begun, and I am looking forward to what’s to come.
