Personal comments
Well, after the first semester I had to move on, because the Erasmus Students can only one semester remain. The room was quite good with kitchen and bad and quite large.However, when I arrived, at the first day, it was not very cleaned!!! We had Internet connection free and that is very helfull for our projects and it also allows us to remain in contact with our friends in our home country.
