I am in what we have recently called the 3 etapa (time period) of our Spain trip. This is basically party mode. Our group has gone a bit crazy, real world style. Let's just say, the hormones are ragin.
I have 1 and half weeks left here. We leave for Barcelona tomorrow for the whole week and then next week is finals! Then off to Portugal for a week. I can't wait to see my family there. I realized that I haven't seen my Dad's sister and her family in....12 years...yes, that long. The last time I saw my cousin, Rafaela, we were both little girls, communicating somehow even though we didn't speak the same language. I'm guessing this time it will be a tad different.
*Went to a bullfight. Pretty scary to see the bull roll over and die. They killed 6 bulls. But it was an awesome experience. Very cultural.
* Went to Salamanca and Burgos.
*Ate some blood sausage
* Saw the Don Quijote windmills
*Saw a Spanish play
* Went to demaisiado Cathedrals
*Shopped in every city
* Woke up at 3 AM to go clubbing
I am going to miss this place. Some new Americans arrived in Alcala recently and we all felt like they were invading our little home. Tender.
