A mini update...

March 25, 2011

I feel like I haven’t had a free moment all week! I have been running around Alicante; taking advantage of all of the festivities/opportunities that the city has to offer! I checked out a new exhibit at the university museum about the women of Spain during the transition to democracy; I went to another cooking class-this time we made hot tapas; David and I met for tea and we went to an amazing symphony concert (Rosa gave us 2 free tickets)…

Today, after language class, I went down to the port with my friend Emily and took in some Alicante sun/read my book (I cannot put it down). Then after some more walking, I sat down in a park to read some more. However, I barely read one page, and along came a very curious little girl from Madrid. She was adorable, and we talked for a good half hour. Then, I walked home for Friday family lunch. Rosa made the best paella that I have tried yet! It is her Saint’s day today, so she wanted it to be special! In Spain everyone celebrates their birthday as well as their Saint’s day!  The calendar of saints is a traditional Christian method of organizing a liturgical year by associating each day with one or more saints.

Anyway, I am off to Morocco tomorrow! I AM SO EXCITED!
