Hola todo!

Sorry I have failed to write in our blog for the past couple of days - I have been so busy with schoolwork!

Anyways, I wanted to write today about my first exchange (or "intercambio" as they call it) with native Spanish speakers. Last night, one of my American friends suggested that we eat dinner with some of the spaniards who just arrived at UIMP on Monday. So, we did, and although it is awkward to put yourself out there and talk to new people, we ...

Next, after lunch we drove to our last destination - Comillas. This part of our trip was definitely the coolest part. We got to see an old palace called la Castilla de sobrellano, which was a neogothical styled home with hints of modernism in the decor. After this, we got to see the coolest part of all - a work of Antoni Gaudí! This architect is famous in Barcelona (and unfortunately we won't have time on our trip to go there), so ...

After leaving downtown, we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach. Tomorrow we are going to the west coast for the day, so stay posted for more exciting details about our trip :)

... D! We met up with Rusty (one of our other very good friends here!) and went to the beach. Yesterday, I found this amazing part of the beach with mossy boulders and rocks filtering and trapping the water, making it more blue and warm! I had to go back today!

Unfortunately, it got too cloudy. The sky looked ominous so we headed back to the dorm. I am still so happy with the time we spent there.

Today couldn't have been any better!

Until next time,
