Belgium is awesome

Me and two friends went to Brussels this weekend and had an amazing time. We only got one day to walk around the city and then on Saturday night we went to a music festival. I would love to go back and spend more time there. The people were really nice and the beer was some of the best I've ever had.

Some more cuteness

Today was one of my students birthday so he brought in a cake and we had a little party for him. He's turning three, so adorable.

Juande, the birthday boy!


I'm looking forward to a skype session with the family :)

Got my hair did at a salon called bodylooks. Its right near my piso and I was a little nervous because I had no idea if they were any good or not. It took 3 hours but it ended up coming out nice and it was only 50 euros for full highlights, a cut and wash and dry. I took a picture while I was waiting for the highlights to set in.

1 trabajando y 2 mirando

So these guys came to the school today to fix the cracks in the cement stairs we have on the patio. One of the teachers looks over to the other one and says, "clasico, 1 trabajando y 2 mirando". Which means 'classic, 1 working and 2 watching'. Apparently this is a common saying in Spain, I wonder why the economy is doing so bad...

Also, just wanted to give a shout out to my dear Mother today. Love you!

I just want to be a resident so I can do resident things with my friends!

Today I went to the foreigners office to finish up the rest of my resident card paperwork. Since I had to take the whole day off from work to do this I took a picture of my number

And then I took a picture of the surprisingly stereotypical looking gypsy sitting next to me...

Parque Boulevard

I go running in this park. It's has that big fountain in the middle and around the whole park is a running/walking track. Theres also a big green area where kids play soccer and theres a skate park. Might head down there right now actually and read my book since its really nice out today.

They're building this new museum here in Jaen and I walk by it everyday and think to myself 'that has to be the ugliest building in Europe'. There's no windows, its massive, it looks like someone widdled it from wood and its just big blocks put together. I guess it used to be an old prison and maybe they just didn't want to do much renovation to it....

Where o where?

A few friends and I are thinking about our travel plans for Christmas and here are some of our options right now. Can you guess where from the pictures?

technical difficulties

my memory card on my camera is experiencing technical difficulties at the moment, so I can't post a picture but what I CAN do is give you the link to a pretty hilarious youtube video. Enjoy
