Hi Carol! Welcome to Londonville. After you have enough coins to by your ticket, enough information and someone to be your neighbor, you can get into the plane and fly to Londonville.

Oh, you have an Imigration Border Office request: you need a visa, some money - not coins - and a reason to be in Londonville.

Congratulations, Carol! You were awarded zero coins - in fact you are poor now - and 1000 experiences for those first tasks. You are now considered a Fresh-Londoner.

Wow, one week in Londonville and you already have two requests: find yourself a house and a job. You have no gifts, however you were awarded a Social-Londoner since you have met more than 20 people.

Hey Carol, one month later and you are a Worker-Londoner. You found yourself a house with ten pople in zone four, you found yourself a job as a waitress and you got to know 5 non-brazilians (apart from the 50 brazilians you are already really close to).

Six months Miss Carolina! Londonville is happy to award you with some coins, a lot of tips, a second job as a bartender and loaaaaaaaaaaaaaads of friends and trips. You are now what we call Non-Londoner-Londoner.

One year goes fast, righ, Carol? Your English is much better, you know around 30 'European' people, 67 Brazilains and you have your own room! You have gained two billions experiences, a good amount of coins and culture and the best friends in the whole world. You have lived London life with all you heart and we are happy to give you the Londoner-World-Citizen Ribbon.

However, now we have an important request to you: to keep on with Londonville you will have either to renew your visa or get your European citizenship. You will spend a lot of money, you will lose a lot of sleep and you will have to try hard. Are you up to it?

Congratulations Caroliiiiiiinaaaaaa. You passed your second winter. You travelled to more than 20 countries. You met more than 300 people from all over the world. You had several boyfriends. You cried a whole river of tears. You laughed kilometers of smiles. You went to amazing concerts and had wicked nights-out, house parties, exhibitions and Pub-events. You have a better job. You used to do your shopping- therapy at Primark and now you can afford Top Shop and Zara. You learned how to cook. You got used to kind-of-warm beer. You have 4000 hours inside the tube and 1300hours in double-deck buses. You had your long-suffered-distance realtionship. You are completly ok with the left-hand and with the 'British Accent'.

You have accumulated 11trillions experiences. 1million pictures. Infinite stories to tell. Loads of adventures and now...and now...and now...we do not know what to do with you anymore!

***Em homenagem as minhas amigas Carolinas - todas que dividiram e dividem Londonville experiences comigo: Carol Vespoli (Best), Carol Ursulino (London sis), Ana Carolina Zanetti (Alice in Wonderland), Carol Landrino (ou, Londrina - umbrella holder) e Anna Carolina Gomes 'Caca' ('querida, chueguei!').

Paula iss offering you a londonville thanks from the bottom of her heart :)

eh sempre assim...

Voce estuda. Faz faculdade, pos graduacao, fala 3 linguas fluentes. Eh comunicativa, estilosa, boa pessoa. Amiga, prestativa, sempre ajudando os outros. Le, ouve musica, ve filmes. Trabalha, viaja, conhece muita gente. Da bom dia e diz muito obrigada. Trata a todos com respeito. Lava, cozinha, faz compras. Se depila, corta seu proprio cabelo, tira a sobrancelha, compra uma roupa nova. Faz de tudo pra ser voce, cada vez numa versao melhor e mais evoluidade. Faz yoga, medita, reza. Se importa com as pessoas que fazem parte da sua vida. Ama a natureza. Vive intensamente e de verdade.

E no fim, ele acaba saindo com aquela outra, que nao eh nada disso - ou quase nada disso - mas que eh gostosa.



Porque as vezes o sentido some. O chão falta. A piada não tem graça. A comida não tem gosto. Porque não tá legal. Porque não tem motivo. Porque não tem razão. Porque não.
