So we’re just going to have to get used to the updates being less frequent.
Alright, so this past weekend was really fun. Thursday night, everyone from UTC went to El Burrito, which is this really fun Mexican restaurant. Basically, the best food I’ve had in my entire life. I told them they could count on my frequent business. Besides, tacos are like €1,50. AMAZING. Friday, my Culture class took a field trip to Segovia. We went to the Royal Palace, Alcazar, a super gaudy Cathedral and the ancient aqueduct (pictured above). Alcazar de Segovia is the palace that a bunch of Disney films copied as the palace for the princesses. Saturday a small group of us went to Toledo. I didn’t do much in Toledo, but we did see a nice Cathedral and a few synagogues. I bought my mom and grams something that I’m real excited to give them! :)
Sunday was father’s day. It was a little bit difficult for me, it still is. Because I live in a different city, not seeing my dad everyday was normal. It took a long time for things to really sink in. It still shocks me when I can’t just pick up the phone and call him sometimes- even though sometimes I pretend to. I think I’ll live my life always acting as if he can hear me, as if he is looking out for me. On the train on Sunday, there was a little girl sitting with her dad. I don’t know what they were doing or where they were going, but it made me really happy that they got to be together. I don’t know that they celebrate father’s day in Spain, but any day you are able to be with family, is a day that you should be thankful. I am so thankful that I have such an amazing mother and sister to go home to! I am truly blessed.
Anyways… Logan, Simply and I spent a lot of time talking about some Bible verses that were on our mind. It’s really encouraging having friends that have such a strong faith. After our discussion, we went to one of the most famous places for churros and chocolate in the world- Sangines. SO GOOD. Andddd we went shopping. Es todo.
Since then, I’ve gotten my midterms back. I got a 96% on Culture and 85% on Latin American Literature- I’m pretty pleased with my grades. Also Spain played against Croatia. AND WE WON. Of course. We play France on Saturday which is a HUGE deal, but I’ll be in Barcelona!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!▲1
