Time Flies

Francis dela Rosa (ESR10)



Hola Amigo y Amiga!

Hi readers! It’s my blog contribution time again!

It’s been a while when I was still in Croatia. I have met really amazing people there, and I consider it my 2nd home next to the Philippines. Now, I am in Girona, Spain, where my “secondment” studies are located. I  met new people, and I am very much looking forward to working with them and joining them during parties hahahaha.

Actually, I don’t feel lost or out of place. Spanish Culture is similar to the Philippines Culture, so in terms of food, beliefs, and gatherings, I must say that there are lots of similarities.  Here in Girona, Spain, I will work for six months at the  Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA). I will be involved in identifying the transformation products of my target pollutant (amoxicillin) using HPLC-Orbitrap mass spectrometry. For an early-stage researcher like me, it will be an amazing experience to work with new people and high-caliber instruments.

I look forward to the best!

Time flies…One year more, and our fellowship will be done.  It feels that whatever I see now are just photos flashing in my head. I will really cherish the moments.

Well, I think that is all in my mind right now.

See you!
