“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

Quick Update

Hey Everyone,

All is well here in Cadiz. We survived the huelga! Actually, there was no real evidence of a strike here. People just used it as an excuse to skip work and go to the beach. And we used it as excuse to skip class! It was so fantastic to sleep in until noon!

We saw a chipmunk in a cage at a pet shop the other day. Very interesting. Especially since in New England we don't shed a tear if we see one lying in the middle of the road, but here, people consider them pets?!

Also, I got pooped on by a seagull today at the beach. Yep. It only took 2 weeks! Needless to say it was a less than pleasant experience, and I am hoping that it doesn't happen again soon.

Tomorrow we have our "examen" as a conclusion for our "intensive" language course. We are currently in the plaza "studying." I'm not too worried. It shouldn't be difficult. In fact, its more of an annoyance than anything else. This course did not help us improve our Spanish as much as we thought. For the most part, it conflicted with all that we have been taught over the years. I will be relieved to hand in that test tomorrow.

I am soooo looking forward to the weekend. Natalie's 22nd birthday is Sunday, so we plan on celebrating from the time we finish our exam tomorrow, until Sunday morning! Should be fun!
