Well this is supposed to be a big time for year long exchange students. Because we have been here for three months. It is during the holidays and it is normal to be homesick. Right now, I miss my family; however, I still want to be here in Spain. It is a strange mix of feelings.
I promise I will post pictures of my high school. And my friends.
ASAIC. (As soon as I can)
Well just to quickly let everyone know, I moved to a new family. I'm not going to tell why because that is not fair. I just wanted to justify why the people and places in the rest of my entries will be extremely different. But no worries, I am still living here in Sevilla.
I had a great Christmas Eve today.
I will tell you about my whole day!
-So I got up and showered at 10.30. We left the house at 12.30 to go to a nearby Village called Gerena. And there our family had a HUGE lunch. We were visiting my host-mamá's side of the family. But strangely enough, my host-father's family is all from Gerena too. It's just the way things worked out. So then we came home around 5ish.
-Then my sister María José and I went outside to talk with our friend Edward. Later he had to leave to go to his puebla for Christmas.
-Next, we went to our friend Laura's house. She has a really nice piano and I just plunked away, but I needed my music. mI don't remember squat from memory. Her house was all decorated because her family (16 ppl!) was coming to her house for dinner. Well, we sat and talke from about 5.30 until 8.30.
-Well, then we left to go get ready for dinner. Everyone was ready and we piled into the car at about 9.00. But then my host mother said that she left her cell phone in the house. So my little sister said she could go get it. BUT all of the sudden she screams and runs out to tell everyone "Papá Noel ha venido" or Santa came! She's 10 and still believes in Santa and the Three wise men. It was so fun to see her face and excitement!
-Well then we went to downtown Sevilla for dinner with my host-father's side of the family. Then yet again, Papá Noel came for the other kids at dinner. Thus, more presents for me.
-I got a really pretty scarf, a book, and a sweet computer mouse for my laptop from my Spanish parents. And my abuelitaa gave me a scarf and really good smelling perfume. Then my abuelitoo gave me 20 euros. I was like holy cow man! I couldn't stop smiling the whole night.
-It was a very nice day. Tomorrow is also filled with adventures.
-But the Three Wise Men come on the ummmmmmmmmm 6th of January. And they leave the gifts under the tree and we open them up in the Morning.
