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 ...

Happy Saturday!

After a very long week, today was more than a treat for everyone. Emily, Ana, and I got ready around 2 and headed to the city for the first time! I thought that our campus was the town, which is very small. I couldn't have been more wrong! Santander is huge! We got lunch (and finally ate a vegetable, not bread or ham) at this lovely restaurant. There, I had a salad garnished with tuna and an authentic Spanish tortilla on the side! A Spanish tortilla is ...
