I choose Faber Andorra because not too much Asian people know even understood it. Also, it is an only country of Catalan official language in the world. I am also curious its culture, is it may between Spanish and French. I understand the cultures may have affects on from neighborhood, because I am from an small oceanic island between different Asian countries.
The environment here is totally different with Taiwan, but I enjoyed it here, particularly I choose a right month to experience the snowy, rainy, windy and sunny days all together in February. Another landscape I preferred most is the trail along the river, it connects the sound, vision, smell with plants, rocks, stream even snow. La Massana is a lovely town, and here are 5 supermarkets nearby. The ski groups come in and go out everyday on the main street, but I find some quiet short-cut roads to go, and see local people walk and sport.
Moreover, I try to explore what lifestyles are here from the history to nowadays. When I visited two national museums, I met twice Cristina luckily. She is a passionate museum officer, and answered my questions about historical life objects of two museums. There are some CARISMA shops supported by local government, where I can find interesting old and used clothes, even toys an books. Because I usually use old clothes as material, and would also like to know what colors, textures or fashion styles of garments local people wore.
The most important thanks for Meri's management, I had been settle down well at Faber Andorra. I have opportunities to visit local two high schools. I met talent teachers, young students, and also textile carfters of textile workshop. It is good to find the inspiration when they try to learn my own "Wrapping" technique. The last thanks is Aminda, I showed my eleven new pieces of fabric figure dolls 'La Massana 1-11" to the public and the press at her Taranmana Gallery.
