We spent the first week here with the books. However, we found time to treat ourselves to a French dinner at a local restaurant. So delicious!
But we also had 6 hours of our first Spanish lessons. Our teacher thought we were doing so well she took us on a field trip to Santa Lucia, a small town 30 min. away. We roamed the town and enjoyed the conversation with her and a cup of chai.
This first week has been crazy windy and cold. And at night the wind is so strong it sounds like a storm outside my window. I had trouble falling asleep the first few nights. Sara promises this will change soon. But just in case, I did buy a jacket in Santa Lucia from the American used clothing store. It was a Land’s End for $10 and in great shape.
