La Vida en Sevilla

October 2, 2006


I hope everyone is doing quite well, and I hope that many of you have received your postcards! If you haven't, you most likely didn't request one or give me your get on that. Here's what's new with me:

A few of my friends and I are planning on taking several trips in and around Spain in addition to the ones sponsored by the school. I just got back from a weekend in Nerja, a small beach on the Mediterranean (in other news, I have learned how to spell Mediterranean) which was quite nice. I debated on messaging/calling a few of you since I was on a beach and I knew it was chilly in KY but it turns out I'm a nicer person than that. I will be going to Lagos (Portugal) next weekend (Oct.12-15) to do some major partying with friends. The following weekend I am going to Barcelona, I've been before but I really love it. On November 1 I am going to Gibraltar for a little day trip--I want to see the monkeys. My final trip is December 6-10 and I am going to Morocco and the Sahara Desert.

Here's an observation I have made about might get a tad bit gross, but deal with it. I see a lot of commercials (or annuncios) for fiber supplements and various other methods of "staying regular" which leads me to consider the state in which my roommate and I (along with most of the other students) find ourselves. We have no problem maintaining said regularity on this Mediterranean diet. I don't know if the Spaniards are just extra backed up or if they believe in preventative medicine...

Speaking of medicine, you can get virtually anything here without a prescription. My roommate had to go to the doctor so I went with her to translate and then we went to the pharmacy. While we were there we got some drugs for the aforementioned problem and I realized we could've asked for just about anything and gotten it. Valium, Oxycontin...who knows!

I would like to give a little shout out to my little brother and his girlfriend--Will just turned 17 and MiSun was crowned Homecoming Queen of Lafayette. Way to go, kids.

Well, I'm sure I have more to say...but I have a lot to do on the internet before my first sevillanas (a Sevilla flamenco dance) class starts!! What do you people think I do, sit around and write emails all day?!
