It's been some time since I've written to the EFIWebheads, but be sure that I am always seeing you through all the messages.
The photo was taken in Lagoa Santa (not Lagoa dos milionários, Félix..), which is a city 40km from Belo Horizonte. The place is the central lake of the city, and I usually go there to take a rest, it makes me feel at peace. Michael was right, the building on the right side is a place to have picnics. But to be honest, I have never gone there to have one (maybe after his suggestion, who knows?) – May 8, 2000
My name is Aline. I'm 19 years old and I study civil engineering in Brazil. I'd like to have an opportunity to practice my English skills and also make new friends. I hope I can count on you!

Aline writes back ...
Thank you all for writing me! As some people asked me some questions, now I’ll try to respond everybody at once.
I'm from Belo Horizonte, (Minas Gerais state), but I had already lived in many places such as Vitória (where I was born) and Recife. I moved to this place 3 years ago.
Civil Engineering is a graduate course which offers work in 5 areas, namely: structural engineering, materials engineering, roads, environmental sciences, and one more that I can/t remember now. I intend to specialize in structural engineering, because I like calculus. But this is a bit far away (I’m only in the second year, and there are 3 years ahead to make a real decision.)
Well, that's all for now ! Thanks for being so friendly!
All of my friendship,
Aline (27 Mar 2000)
