¡No estoy muerta!
¡No estoy muerta! I’m not dead! I’ve just been terrible about keeping up this blog, and I apologize for that. I can’t believe it’s been a month and a half since my last entry.
Life in Spain continues to be amazing. I’m enjoying my classes (more or less), meeting new people, having fun with friends, and traveling like crazy. Since my last entry, I went to Italy, where we visited Cinque Terre, Lake Como (from Lake Como we took a short trip to Lugano, Switzerland), and Milan), as well as Córdoba and Granada (I lived in Granada for a month in 2006) in Andalucía, the southern region of Spain. Both trips were absolutely amazing, and, don’t worry, I will eventually be doing full updates about them.
I also had my dad, Andrea, Ean, Dylan, Sara, and Rachel visit me, which was great, and then Claire, her boyfriend Patrick, Sara, Austin, and Michael were in town for Thanksgiving. Having Jessica, Sara, Claire, Austin, and me reunited in Madrid was very, very cool, because we’ve been close friends since middle school, and now here we are, years, later, hanging out together in Spain!
Tomorrow I leave for Sevilla, and from Sevilla, Sara, Jessica, and I go to Morocco where we’ll spend three days. Morocco! Africa! How epic is that?! And after Morocco, Jessica and I are spending a day in Granada.
We get back to Madrid early Wednesday morning and then Jessica and I leave for Brussels, Belgium Thursday morning! We’ll spend two days there and then fly back Saturday morning. Then, the following Thursday through Sunday, Sara and I are going to Paris! And the next Monday, I fly home to L.A.!
GAH MY LIFE IS SO AWESOME. SO AWESOME I MUST BREAK OUT INTO CAPSLOCK. ♥♥♥♥♥♥
Madrid is also lovely right now because they’ve put up Christmas lights all over the city, as well as little Christmas fairs, ice skating rinks, and other fun things.
I need to get back to packing for my trip this weekend, but I’ll try to get better at updating this thing! I still haven’t written about my daytrips to Segovia and Aranjuez, and I planned out an entry talking about the differences between American and Spanish universities, plus I need to talk about Italy and Andalucía, and then I have these fantastic upcoming trips to talk about. I’ll get there eventually!
