Sevilla- Begin Again
Hello again, everyone!
After a very relaxing (albeit boring) month at home, it's great to finally be in Sevilla. Especially after surviving my three flights- a nine hour one to London, then five hours to Madrid, then after seven extremely long and painful pleasemaketheplanecomealready hours, I arrived in Sevilla around nine-thirty. It was amazing to see all my friends again, and I had a great time at dinner.
That first night for tapas, we had:
- french fries covered in a garlic aioli
- pork in a whiskey-reduction sauce with french fries
- fried hot dogs
- ...and more french fries
The food here is absolutely delicious in comparison with the Chilean food. My host family took me out for lunch and I couldn't stop raving about the food...
I met them for the first time today an hour late after a slight mix-up.. somehow the program coordinator confused Mel and I (like that's never happened before...) and I ended up having to wait at the hotel until the whole situation was resolved, but luckily my host family was very gracious about everything! I'm living with a younger couple and their 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter, and having a blast. Sevilla is absolutely beautiful, and I'm really looking forward to our tour tomorrow.
