So I still have soooo many pictures that I need to upload from my many travels. I’ve been so busy, and partially lazy lol but they will be up soon!
welive-halfatnight said: I absolutely love your blog! I was in Spain on an exchange trip in February and Sevilla was my favorite city! Looking at your pictures brings back a lot of memories from my trip! I visited a lot of the places that you have pictures from in Sevilla, Madrid, and Barcelona! I also was also excited when I watched Jersey Shore in Spanish with my host brother! I really hope you enjoy the rest of your stay!
Thank you!! Only a few days left so I’m going to live it up =)
Wow, where has the time gone? Finals week has started and I just finished my first exam, which was Spanish. I actually felt sad when I turned that paper in. Not because I did bad lol, but because I’ve learned so much in that class and got to know some amazing people. This class was so different from a normal college class. We actually got to be social and get to know each other. Our professor even gave us a hug goodbye! I wish I would have thought to take a group class picture! If you know me, you know in high school I was NEVER a fan of Spanish class. I thought I’d never take another Spanish class in my life. Never say never huh? That class ending today just made reality set in even more. I’m going home soon and there’s absolutely no way I can slow these days down. Ahh I feel sad just writing this. I don’t want this dream to end…..
So I went to a Bull Fight in Sevilla a few weeks ago and it was definitely a once in a life time experience! As I quickly found out, its not just a bull running around chasing a man with a red flag. The point of the fight is to kill the bull. I’ve never seen something like that in my life! They have 6 bulls and they tease them with the red flag and have them run after them for a little, and then they bring out a man on a horse that is blind folded and covered in padding and the bulls runs up and attacks the horse. The man on the horse then stabs the bull several times. Then the man on the horse leaves and the bull goes back to chasing the men with the red flags and they continue to strike it. It was crazy to see the people cheering them on every time they stabbed the bull. I’m glad I went for the Spanish cultural experience, but I definitely never need to see that again in life.
