The last couple of weeks have been an adventure. I celebrated Halloween, I went hiking, and also took a trip to Valencia with my class. Halloween was a lot of fun here because I went to a 7 floor club called Kapital with many of my friends. I got to dress up cute and had makeup like a vampire. The club is absolutely amazing there are dance floors, a karaoke floor, and relaxing floors. We had a long and fun night. I went hiking in a city called Patones. I went with the younger kids at my school; it was about two hours away from Madrid by bus. We climbed almost to the top and it was hardwork but it was worth it because of the beautiful view. Also on this day we hiked to a really old village that was magnificent. Especially since it was fall and all the leaves were changing colors. Last weekend though I went to Valencia for the weekend with my class. From Madrid it took almost 5 hours on bus to get to Valencia.Valencia is a place in the south-east of Spain next to the ocean. While we were there we did several activities including sight seeing, going to an aquarium and making food for turtles, and walking on the beach. I had so much fun getting to know my class and seeing an amazing city like Valencia.
The 8th of November marked my two months here and what a two months it has been. It definitely has been full of ups and downs. Getting adjusted to the culture. language, and new city I am living in. I am coming along great though. I learn different things everyday and I think its one of the best parts of this experience. Sometimes I’m sitting in a place andjust feel so enchanted. I can’t describe the feeling but I feel so happy to behere. I always catch myself thinking, “I’m really here, who gets to do this”. Don’t get me wrong there are days that are hard but I remind myself to step back and look at how lucky I am to have this opportunity. I am so excited for the memories I am going to make thisyear. I’m making so man friends and going to so many cool places. Also theholidays are around the corner and it is my favorite time of the year (:
