Pretty good, though it's been posted before. The thing is, every nation in Europe could make a similar one - we're about as uniform as an Israeli parliment.

:howler: Indeed :D

For instance, in Holland it's a good custom great female friends with three kisses (needless to say I take full advantage of that one :D) and male friends with a short hug.

Things like these differ all over the Continent. Sometimes minor changes, sometimes bigger but it's never EXACTLY the same.

Why are there no hot Dutch women around here? :( Any sign of Electronics internships near you are there, Erik?;)

Yes actually. I ran into a Portuguese Mechanics student who studies in at the Electronics University of Delft (suburb of The Hague) the other day. We were on the train, he was practising Dutch, I complemented on his skills, we got into a conversation, you know how it goes.

If you're serious about that, I could look up some info. I mean, exchange programmes are the best. So far I've done one (went to the UK) and I have two more coming. One of them I'll spend in Italy (near Napels) and the other one I have yet to decide! :strong:

Seriously, it's a bit late to look into it this year, though thanks for the offer.

Actually, it only occured to me because I had a telephone interview for a year-long internship in Germany this afternoon.

When are you going to Napoli?

I'm hoping January but my supervisor said he might schedule me for September (not good, I want to celebrate Christmas at home and plus, Spring is the best time to be abroad. Was in the UK from January-July too). It's a six month exchange programme.

I'll find out 9 April when the planning machine at uni is done and all students have been rewarded their places.

Germany eh? Nice! I have friends who filed for Germany. How likely is that?

Good luck. Do tell us when it's all settled.

It's not out of the question, though I haven't a clue what kind of competition I have. My CV looks like it's tailored for the job (without any tailoring, bizzarely!), though I only got a pass in second year, which will count against me.

Will do!

But you got the pass in the end, that combined with a solid CV should get you through it!! Best of luck there, let me know!

Thanks Erik. Will do. I should know if I made the second round by the end of the week.

Oh, could you correct the spelling in this thread title please? :)

It contains an error? :confused::D

Very well. I don't usually do this as I'm not always fond of people telling me I made a spelling error either but once requested I suppose I have to do my moderator's duty :sigh:;)

They do actually. At leas the getting in line part is true. I experienced that when I wanted to buy a ticket at the ticket shop for the match Parma-Juve. My god, still don't know how I managed to get out of that one alive and WITH a ticket! :dazed:

Took a leaf out of your neighbours' book and dug a trench around the kiosk? ;)
