Ice Skating is easier than Roller Skating
So, back in Cyprus, i decided to try the other form of skating, that with the rollers, assuming that it would be as easy. One of my colleagues, Julia, was an expert at this and she volunteered to teach me the basics. Ironically, the very first lesson was “How to fall down properly”! Well, i wasn’t very interested in taking a lesson on falling down, but was forced to. I realised the importance of this one lesson very soon into my trials! We decided to try in our parking lot. I had to recruit two more guys to just help me get on my feet and they continued to pull/push me around and in the end, i proclaimed that i had done roller skating! The photo you see above had to be taken very fast as the guys just moved out of the frame and came back just in time to prevent me from implementing my lesson on falling down.
