... that I could eat every day. I did notice others putting the churros in their coffee. Lots of kids were missing from the first class as they were having a long weekend in Portugal. They are all obsessed with going to the beach. In my last class we had to role play being in a restaurant. She even gave us the phrase for 'I found a hair in my soup'. Was fun but tricky.

I slept til 5am, but then managed to dose off again until 7. I squeezed myself into the impossibly small shower. Breakfast was toast, then Marisol took me to the meeting point at the university. The walk was amazing, old buildings just popped out from every corner. People were setting up their shops and cafés. I was in awe. Our path took us through the Plaza Mayor, it was amazing. Even at a 8am it was bustling with people. On ...
