¡Hola from Spain!
« on: March 25, 2005, 03:45:29 PM »
Hey everybody, I am writing this from a hotel lobby in España.  The keyboard is screwy.  Silly spainards.

This is the first time I´ve had time to write, otherwise I may have done it sooner.

But yeah, for the last week I´ve been tracking across Spain with a group of thirty-six students, seeing cities including, but not limited to, Madrid, Toledo, and right now Sevilla.  It is very nice here, and the €uro is so strong everything is very, very expensive...

Man, I love it here so much.  Tommorow we go to meet out spanish host families, which will leave me helpless to their strange language of which I have decided I am not very fluent in.  At all.  In fact, I am certain that the extent of the family stay will revolve around my asking, ¨How much is this,¨¨Where is the bathroom,¨and, "I´m Hungry...

But I must express again that everywhere I have seen here is infinately supirior to anything I have seen in the states.  Ever.  And I travel a decent amount within th states.

Pooh.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Well fine, if that is the way you feel, then you can just stay over there, and never know how it feels to use long sentences again.
By the way, while you are over there, could you buy me a sword, and, just to make sure the chaperones don't give you a hard time about having it, hide it somewhere they wouldn't look. Like your ribcage.  :)

That's awesome, Gorgon!  Visiting other countries and cultures is always fun, especially when you've the money to buy whatever looks interesting and "authentic."  Hope everything goes well with your host family!

I spent a semester in French Polynesia once.  That was just awesome.

At any rate, cuidate.  And don't make fun of my poor Spanish while you're at it.  =þ

Hey!  I want to be in Europe!

How long are you over there for, Gorgon?
