Thank goodness its the weekend!! can't believe the second week is over if flew by so fast. I'm planning on spending the afternoon at the beach. Classes went well this afternoon. I have midterms next week in two classes, yikes!!
USAC offers a really cool thing to the students that they can sign up for which are called intercambios. These intercambios are Spanish students that go to the university who are studying English. You can get paired up with someone and you can meet whenever and however many times you want. They will help you practice Spanish and vice versa. A few of my friends have met with them and it sounds cool to make a new local friend. I just got the info on my intercambio today. His name is Fernando!! I have to call him and I'm really nervous. I'm not sure how my spanish is going to sound on the phone. I hope he wants to meet up soon. I think it will be a good experience and good spanish practice.
Last night twelve of us girls were going to go snorkeling off the island of Tabarca and watch the sunset. Our guide
my strawberry daiquiri. Too much sugar!
(who spoke really funny English) told us it was too choppy to go all the way to the island. He took us along the cost and said we could reschedule and he wouldn't charge us for this trip. He was so nice. The waves were huge!!! we were screaming so loud and it felt like a roller coaster. I was a little nervous because our boat was so tiny. I'm really excited for the next time to go out. Afterwards, a few of us girls went to a really cute outside bar called Soho. I got my first strawberry daiquiri here. It was super sugary, I don't think I could drink it again. This morning I also got a hot chocolate from a machine!! They give you a little dixy cup looking thing with hot chocolate. You can get coffee too. It was a little strange but super cool.
After school today I stopped into this ceramic/pottery store. They have tons of really pretty kitchen pottery and bowls and things. Mom, you would love this store. I asked the lady and she said all of the stuff was made here in Spain. Its really cool.
I'm about to
the hot chocolate/coffee vending machine at school
eat lunch with my family in a few minutes. My host mom asked if I could french braid her hair because she loved mine when I did it. It was so cute. The world cup also starts today. I have a feeling I'm going to be watching a lot of soccer soon.
