School/ Museum/ Tapas Night #2
17.06.2016 - 17.06.2016
I slept last night!!! I didn’t die! I woke up feeling better! (Not all the way, but much better than the past few days.) Getting up was difficult because I stayed up pretty late and was tired haha, but I did sleep when I tried to! At school today we had Leo as a teacher! She is my favorite. We learned vocabulary about Don Quijote today because on Sunday we are doing a day trip surrounding his adventurers. The morning dragged because I was so tired, but at break I got a lot of fresh fruit to eat which made me happy! And then for the afternoon we went to a Don Quijote museum and just got to look around! I was pretty happy about that!
After the museum, I walked back home to relax. I feel asleep and got woken up for lunch haha! Then after lunch I set an alarm and feel asleep again really really fast. When my alarm went off I was very confused for a while, I couldn’t figure out what day it was and why my alarm would be going off so early lol! I did however figure it out and pull myself out of bed to head to the dinosaur museum with the rest of the group. We walked about 30 minutes to the museum and then paid out 1.50-euro admission fee haha. The museum was really fun especially with such a fun group of people!
After we left we went to a lookout platform. Cory and I wanted to go down and see the lake so we announced we were going there and then left the group (assuming they would follow or wait there). Haha they didn’t…we lost them…oh well at least there were two of us! We made our way back to town, found a bar with wifi and texted the other group to find a meeting place. Haha the joys of only having phones that operate when wifi is abundant. We all met up again outside of the first bar we went in for tapas. After that bar we walked to a really cool cave bar place!
It was a bar inside of a real cave! I had tinto de verano to drink (basically wine, fruit, and soda I think), and the food was AMAZING! Much better than the food we usually are served at bars! And tapas night is fun because everything is free! (I mean we paid this program enough that it should be… but it feels fun to not have to worry about paying at the end. ) A big group of people were going to a party after but I really just wanted to go home. Plus, Alannah (who I am becoming very good friends with) wanted to head home and I wanted to make sure she was safe since she is only 17 (so young!) and doesn’t know the city that well yet. I walked her to where her host parents were meeting her and we got to talk along the way and even sat down and just talked for a while. She is so sweet and I really value the friendship we are building! (She reminds me so much of me at that age!) Today was fun! And in a week from today I go home-mixed feelings about that- but, “I must say” [Ireland saying] I will appreciate sleeping in my own bed soon and seeing my real family!
Highlight of my Day: Talking to Alannah about life and building an international friendship! And also laughing with my host family so hard at lunch over something silly the dad said that we were all crying lol!
