Hello and Welcome to December!

This past weekend I had a new adventure... I went with 4 other girls from my program and my host sister to a cool little town in the mountains called Bubion. It is a part of the Alpujarras region near Granada. When I say little, just to put it in perspective, we are talkin 300ish people and 4 roads :) Well there were a few more roads I think but that is an official statistic on people.

We stayed an a sweet little apartment (built for 4 people and thus I was forced to lie multiple times saying we were only 4 instead of six so I felt bad and when there are only 300 people in the town I donīt think the whole hiding the extra two really worked but oh well). The apartment was freezing as was the town and the church we went to you could see your breath all through mass. It was hard core mass. We hiked some, and I am hoping we were up pretty high because I was definitely getting winded very quickly. Our other adventures included visiting all the tourist shops (I believe there were 5) and visiting the same resturaunt at least twice a couple people visited 4 times ;)

It was a great relaxing break from the loud town experience. I had heard rumor that Granada is the 3rd most noise polluted city in Europe or something like that but had not realized that I had really not been in silence for soooo long. It was AWESOME!

That about summarizes that adventure... It was a lot of walking the 4 streets ;)

Things are winding up here wtih finals (the first was today), papers, goodbyes etc. sooo that said if you do not get email response quickly I beg your pardon! Also as I am starting to plan my x-mas break if you are in the area (I think I said this in the last message... but donīt remember) let me know when or what days are good for you so we can plan a  time to catch up! I am home the 22nd of december til the 9th... well tecnically I get home the 21st but I donīt think I would make the best company after around 30 hours travel :) Besitos!
