Summary of the past week:

Our group is still hanging out all the time. I still see the guys from the other programs every now and again. The beach has turned into a popular hang out spot.We've been going to el barrio a good amount during the week.

Classes are going along smoothly. I think im beginning to pickup a lisp because of the accent most of the spanish have with their S'es and C'es. My host mom is still sweet, but kind of distant. Our schedules don't match up. I get back from class and shes taking her siesta. I go out during the night and she doesnt (shes in her 50's) but stays up late.

I've started running again =).

This weekend I went to London (Saturday) since our planned trip to Valencia was canceled. I met up with Thomas and Ainsely up there since I hadn't seen Tom since september when he started his study abroad. Unfortunately we couldn't get in touch with Greg or Andrea who also happen to be hanging around London. It was a great time though, we hung out at witherspoons restaurant and bar for several hours and later found a hostel for the night which happened to have a club downstairs. The next day (Sunday) we went to the tate modern art museum and buckingham palace before a late lunch and my flight back to Spain.

Now im back in Alicante again and enjoying it down here.

The inauguration starts soon so im off.


  1. I'm glad you were able to hook up with Thomas. Did you watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace? I remember how much you enjoyed it in 2000. :D

    I will be interested to hear what the Spaniards/Europeans think of our new president and the inauguration.

  2. Nice! Tomas! Ainsley! awesome man. i like your picasa pics also btw. keep em coming, and i for one think you include way too little in your blogs...

  3. I agree with Adam. We need more info. And where are the photos from London????
