I am back in Spain for another year. I will continue to do updates like I did all last year.

So, I had planned to just relax but then Armen, a very nice professor at the school invited me to go out with him and his friends.  I of course accepted the invitation and had a great time!  All of the friends had matching costumes, wigs and painted faces, it was great.  I just had my face painted so that I looked frightening.  I will try to post a picture soon, but I have to find my camera cord! (I "cleaned" my room and now can't find it)  It was a great time and surprisingly there was a bar that was all decorated for Halloween.  There were orange and black balloons and streamers, the bar tender even shot silly string onto the dance floor!  We didn't get to go to sleep till about 4:30 a.m. but I slept till 1 p.m. and then Armen drove me to the bus a little later.  All in all, it was great to experience a "Spanish" Halloween, thanks to Armen.

This week is just lessons as usual.  Thanks for including all those idioms in your comment Tia E.  I am sure I can use them eventually, 7 more months so I need all the material I can get!  Today, I have been in Spain a month.  It feels like it hasn't been that long, they warned us at orientation that time will fly and it has.  I guess my time is going faster than others because I am enjoying everything about my experience. (Idiom ..... time flies when you are having fun!)


  1. Wow, glad you are having fun! I have also been sick and it is a pain!! I heard you spoke to Mommy and Daddy the other morning.
    Just fyi, I might not be able to skype you for a while because PSU blocked my comp's internet connection for some type of reason. I have to use wireless which is only in public places so typing is what I am limited to. I have 2 exams this week so really after all the studying I will be able to talk to you next week. I am still working on getting my passport too so hopefully I will have it in time to get my visa.
    The dinner we had with the South African prof went well and he is sending me his book that came out recently. (He teaches at The University of Toronto) He just told me to send him an email with my address. It was really great because we read his papers for our research while we were there earlier this year so it was nice getting to interact with him.
    Nothing else new for me to tell you...well actually, I was just thinking--I used fyi in my comment so I don't know if that is something you could use because people do say it lots. Maybe asap? OK, run tell that!
    xo Faith

  2. Also, I apologize for talking about me a ton in my last comment. I just wanted you to know why I won't be on skype and it turned into a huge comment about me!! jajaja sorry!
