Second week here in Scotland start’s to be end.. Today is sunday and tomorrow starts new week here. Time goes so fast here. So much to do and see.. We have had new experiences this week. One of my favourite was visit to Robert Burns museum and cottage. It was very interesting and at the same time very nice experience. I actually choosed that Robert Burns will be one of my items on the portfolio.. So i will be telling there more about that man. Of course i will tell also here little bit about him.
So about the Robert Burns. He was born in little village called Alloway. Which is here in Ayr. His mother birth Robert their own home. They lived Burns cottage. Robert was oldest of 4 siblings.. He was died age of 37,5. He has heart condition called myocarditis/endocarditis. And that was the reason why he died so young age. Robert wrotes poems and was very known person because of that. Actually he became more popular and famous after his death. The poems was wroted scotthis accent. And for me those poems are hard to understand cos the language is very old scottish accent. Sometimes feels it is not english at all. Some poems i do understand. And there in the museum was basically everything about him and his life.. He has also wife and children. He is very interesting person and i would like to know more about him. He is almost like a national hero here in Scotland. Everybody knows Robert Burns here, no matter who you ask about him. I buy also few postcards there and i will put the pictures here.
Oh i could talk Robert Burns like all day.. But maybe it is enough for now about him. 🙂 Week goes so fast and i don’t actually even remember all the things what we do this week. Oh yes we was on the beach.. It was very windy but nice. Sun was shining and we take lot of pictures there, suprise suprise. We was also meeting our erasmus goordinator on thursday but our placement isn’t organize yet.. What i’m little sad and frustrated actually. i just want to start my placement.. That’s why i am here! And i have time limits and weeks what i need to do that i can complete my placement.. I hope we can get to start soon.. We have also next week freetime..It is nice to see around but still i would like to start my placement soon. Well it will beorganized soon.. I hope!
But about more nice things.. I was thinking that i post here those pictures of those postcards what i buy in the museum and i think also taking here some of his poems. So yes i will do that now! Here is the cottage where Robert Burns was born. It was very nice. We visited there.. So amaxing. Sorry about that this picture is side ways .. I didn’t know how to turn it right way.. But this is Robert Burns. And i forget to say that he also wrote songs too.
And here is one of this poems. It’s called A Red, Red Rose.
O my Luve's like a red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June; O my Luve's like the melodie That's sweetly play'd in tune. As fair are thou, my bonie lass, So deep in luve am I; And I will luve thee still, my Dear, Till a' the seas gang dry. Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear, And the rocks melt wi' the sun: I will luve thee still, my dear, While the sands o' life shall run. And fare thee weel, my only Luve! And fare thee weel, a while! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho' it were ten thousand mile! http://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poetry/poems/red-red-rose
