I cannot believe that my 6 weeks in Segovia have come to an end! This summer absolutely flew by, but it’s been an incredible experience! I’ve improved my Spanish, learned a lot about the culture, met people from all over Europe, and made some amazing lifelong friends.
I had a 5 page paper due for each of my classes (Advanced Grammar & European Union) on Tuesday and then exams on Wednesday. Last night, all of the professors, students, and madres got together at a restaurant (El Hidalgo) for a farewell dinner. We all got a little dressed up and had fun chatting with everybody. After that, all of the students went out and spent our last night in Segovia partying till dawn 🙂
My awesome host mom, Nati, got me a scarf, a jewelry box, and a special lid so that I can make my own tortillas de patatas! I’m very excited to try it out when I get home!! The next adventure will be attempting to fit everything in my suitcase without being overweight.
Tomorrow morning I leave Segovia and head to Madrid, where I’ll take the AVE (high-speed train) to Valencia in southeastern Spain. I’m traveling on my own for a few days there, and I’m very excited! It’s on the beach and has some neat museums to visit. It should be a great mini vacation before I head back to the states on Wednesday!
