Hey guys, it’s been a while since I last updated, mainly because I kept forgetting to write a post 🙂
Anyway, so what have I been up to since I last posted? Well, I passed my driving test finally, yasss!! I passed first time, it’s just that I started lessons late, as I couldn’t fit them around my schedule before, but finally that’s over! The annoying thing is that I passed two and half weeks before I left for Spain, so I only had a short time to drive my car before I left it for two months 😦
Which brings us to the next thing I have done! Which is fly to Spain to stay with my grandparents! I’ve been here for nearly three weeks now, and it’s hottttttttt – like 40°C! The other day it was 45°C; wayyy too hot to sunbathe (which was unfortunate for my tan). Last week was ‘the fiestas’, which meant a lot of food, some drinks, late nights, and early mornings! Needless to say, at the end of the week I was feeling pretty much dead.
The Fiestas is a big celebration with lots of elements of traditional things that they have been doing for generations! Here where I am, they celebrated 40 years of fiestas this year. And this year I got forced to participate in two things by my Abuela! One was on the first day, which was to walk/march with the christanos through the village, which I didn’t know was going to happen… And there’s an orchestra playing behind you as well! Then the other was on the last night of the fiestas. This event is done to mark the end of the events, and you have to dress up in fancy dress and dance/walk through the town with drums playing! This is done at night and a LOT of people participate in this.
That’s all for now, so, until next time, bye!
