Active Student

Last week somebody wanted to know who the designer of "Puente de la Mujer" in Puerto Madero (BA, Argentina) was. Some of the students in the group assumed Leo had that information; well, he didn't. However, the following day he sent us an email enlightening our limited knowledge.

This is his email:

As I promised you, the designer of Puente de la Mujer in Puerto Madero
is Santiago Calatrava. He also has some paintings, sculptures and
ceramics...
more information at: www.calatrava.com

Regards,
Leo


Thanks a lot Leo, we know you keep your promises. (I guess nobody but me has thanked him.)

Another active student (much younger, but with a blogger profile) posted two short articles on Puerto Madero. You can have a look here and here.




I didn't download this picture from Flickr this time. It's also there, though. I'm the artist this time. The boy on the run is my husband's grandson happily crossing the bridge on a wonderful spring day last year.

What about...
You: Thanks, Leo.
Leo: You're welcome.
...?

I finised my Intermediate 1 at ICANA, last year and I begun Intermediate 2 and I didn't finished it 'cause I didn´t like my teacher. My work helped a little bit too, finishing the year.
My company send me to improve my english because I work at Indian company and sometimes I've to speak to foreign people. I didn't speak very fluently, but the basics I can speak.
