Today I've been in Fuengirola for exactly 100 days, which also means it's been 100 days since I was in Sweden. It feels unreal that it's been such a long time, it feels like halloween was two days ago but instead it's December and I'm flying home in less than 20 days. Time flies by while I'm here and I just wish I could stop the clock and reflect over how much fun I'm having here. It's sad to know that almost half of my year here is over. A lot has happened since last time I updated the blog so I thought I'd summarise some of the most important ones.
About 10 days ago my friend from Sweden came to visit me which was so much fun. It was really nice to get to talk to her about everything that was happening back at home and to just catch up with her and some of my other friends. She got to meet my friends down here and I showed her around the city. She loved the life down here and it was so great to be with her again!
The same day as my friend from Sweden flew home some of my friends and I celebrated my roomie Stella's birthday by going to Prison Island which was our present to her. We were divided into different teames and had different themes per group, my team were assigned as the military and we came third.
Last Saturday we celebrated my other friend named Emily because it was her birthday as well. We surprised her with some long-awaited tacos and ate a really good cake from Mercadona. After eating good food and talking for hours we headed to the bar street to continue celebrating our lovely Emily.
The day after that Stella, Ella and I headed up to el torro which is a big placard of a bull which is a big part of the Spanish culture. We made a little picnic and sat there watching the sun go down over Fuengirola. We had such a cozy time and spent hours talking until it got too cold. I love this city and these people!
Yesterday we spent the entire day Christmas decorating our school and it turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Every single corner of the school had some kind of Christmas decoration and we even made our own Christmas tree. Each class got to decorate their own classroom and of course SA2 (my class) turned out to be the coziest one of them all. After that we baked pepparkakor and lussekatter and my god have I missed Swedish Christmas pastries and candies. Before the school closed we all sat in the aula and watched a Christmas movie together before heading home.
