Artur writes about his memorable night out:

My memorable night began on 10th November, 2012 – 5 years ago, in Krakow (Poland). Together with my wife we were expecting the birth of our second daughter. As usual we went to bed about 10:00 p.m. Three hours later my wife woke me up and told me that she was probably about to give birth.

I quickly called a taxi and we went to the hospital. Immediately my wife was admitted to the birth room. I was with her in the hospital all the time. In the hospital I was disinfected and dressed in special medical sterilized clothes. They were green.

When the sun was shining in the sky, at 9:05 a.m. our youngest daughter Sarah was born. It was Sunday, 11th November. Although in Poland at this time of year it is already autumn, it was quite warm and a very sunny day. It was an additionally special day, because on this day National Day  is celebrated in Poland  – Independence Day.

When our daughter Sara was born, we celebrated the 94th anniversary of regaining independence after the annexation of Poland by Prussia, Russia and Austria. As family and friends offered us their best wishes for Sara’s birth, they said Sara would be the child of victory. Indeed, she is a very independent and brave girl. It was a very emotional night. I came back home at noon and immediately went to bed.

    It was in December last year when I was on holidey in Barcelona with my boyfried. Iwore a black skirt and a red t-shirt and a woollen coat. We wolked along the Ramblas where there were many people and a lot of stands, musicians and street artists. Everything was animated and colorful…It was absolutely chaotic but fascinating!
    After the walk we went to a great restaurant in the gothic neighborhood. We ate fish and fried frogs!
    After dinner we went to several places and we talked to a lot of people! It was a cold night. We got back to the hotel at 2 a. m.
    It was a memorable night because we had great fun, we walked along one of the best known streets and we had a fantastic dinner!

      Many thanks Antonella! A correction:
      “along the Ramblas where there were a lot of people”

      “Much” and “Many” are usually used:
      – in questions and negatives
      – as the subject of a sentence.
      In statements where “much” and “many” form part of the object, we usually use expressions like “a lot of”, “quite a few”, “planty of” and similar.

      I hope this helps!

    It was in Lisbon three years ago, when I was in Portugal for wark.
    I was with my friends and my colleagues.
    I wore a denim Jacket.
    We went out and walked around the centre of Lisbon. We spoke in portuoguese.
    We arrived in the main square by chance, where there was a fantastic circus show.
    It was a warm night with a hot wind.
    I got back home at four half past.

    It was a magical night because we danced and sang with the people around us.

    It was last March. I was in Madrid for a vacation.
    I was with my friends, who were living there during Erasmus.
    I wore a light shirt, a blue jacket and blue trousers.
    We went to a students’ house, friends of my friends, for dinner.
    We ate pizza and drank a lot of wine.
    After the dinner, we went to a great disco in the center of Madrid.
    It was very late and the metro station was closed, so we got a taxi.
    At 3.00 am we went into the disco. The music was very cool!
    At 7.00 am we got home, but before, we had breakfast with a hamburger and chips at Mac Donald’s.
    At half past 8 I was in my bed. I was very tired.
    It was a memorable night because we were in a new and fantastic city. Also I met a lot of interesting guys.

    Thanks, see you soon!
