“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

Linea! Bingo!

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share a wonderful little story with you all. Last night I went to BINGO! YES! As many of you know, I am a serious Bingo player. Whether it be the real thing or the scratch-off version, I have some luck with this game. Well, that was until I played Spanish Bingo. Allow me to explain. Here is a picture of a typical Bingo card.

Each Bingo card costs 2 euro. Here is how it works. There is a giant light-up board with numbers 1-99. The caller shouts out the numbers. The first person to get "linea" or all of the numbers in the 1st row, wins a small prize. After someone gets a linea, the calling continues until someone gets every number on their card. If you notice, I was VERY CLOSE with both of these cards! 

Bingo here is a lot of fun! We hope to go once a week just to play a few cards and test our luck. We are no competition for the regulars (like our host mom and her friend) our the high-rollers (who sat at the table next to us) but its a fun way to practice our Spanish numbers!!!

Hopefully next time I walk away with some money! 

Hasta luego!
