adios, españa

Okay, so my last couple weeks in Spain were pretty jam-packed so I won't be able to share everything I've been up to with you, but I can get the main gist across.  Basically, when we realized we didn't have much time left, we tried to pack everything that we didn't get a chance to do into our remaining two weeks.  We went to Los Miserables in Madrid -- absolutely amazing!.  We finally rode bikes in Retiro Park.  And we attended our final charlas and institute activities with our amigos españoles.

And thanks to the curse I must have been given as a child to always get sick during finals, I was sick during my last week in Madrid - with finals to study for and three months worth of European shopping to pack.  So here's a little bit of what we did and I'll put more when I get the pictures.

This is everything I bought while in Spain:

This is our last family photo:

I wish I had more pictures from our last few weeks in Spain (ahem, Michael-Ann!) but we'll have to wait on those.  I miss Spain so much already - everything about it.  But I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to be there and learn so much about myself and the country.  I'm grateful for the friends I made and the amazing things we got to see and do.  I hope I can return someday very soon.

Ya echo mucho de menos España.  Estoy muy agradecida por la oportunidad que he tenido para estar alli y para aprender mucho.  Estoy agradecida por los amigos que tengo y por todo lo que hemos hecho.  ¡Te quiero, España y amigos españoles y ojalá que puedo volver pronto!
