Less than 2 weeks left…
They say you truly know you’re enjoying something when time goes by quickly. Here in Spain, time is going my faster that I’d ever imagine.
And - sadly - in just 11 days, the end will be here.
For now, I’ll reflect on the happier things, though. This past weekend I went to an Amaral concert (who is one of the most popular artists in Spain). While I couldn’t understand any of her lyrics, doing interpretive dance during the concert made it all the more fun. :) Afterwards, my friends and I went to a fair, which was open until 4 or so a.m. (that’s ridiculous!). To my surprise, not only were there cotton candy and hot dog stands, but there were night clubs too! I guess the fairs aren’t just for children anymore….
On an unrelated note, last Thursday, I saw a beautiful procession for Corpus Christi. It’s a Catholic celebration here in Toledo, which is meant to honor the body of Christ. Ironically, the night before, the streets were filled with people dancing at a “Top 40” concert (me and my friends included). But despite having to wake up just a few hours after that party ended, the morning procession was still nice to see.
Lastly, this weekend, we’re headed to Segovia! Quite honestly, I have no idea where that is, but it’s still a new place where I can take more photos!
While the time has been flying by, the moments have only gotten better. The program may only be four weeks, but the experience and knowledge that I’ve gained from being abroad will carry on much longer than that. Still, it’s not over yet - so it’s time to “carpe diem,” and see just what these last 11 days will bring.
