Where to find PEANUT BUTTER in Spain
2009/10/05 § 1 Comment
Today I had my first “real” day of school! It got off to a fabulous start- my (only) class started at 10am, and since I wasn’t exactly sure how long it would take me to get there, I left my apartment at 8.55am. Metro, fine. When I got off the metro though…long story short, I walked around for over an hour, and couldn’t find the dang university! Multiple factors contributed to this: on my way there last week, I was with a friend who knew where we were going; on the way back, another friend. I guess I didn’t pay close enough attention, even though I thought I did. Also, nobody in that neighborhood knows that the Universidad de Nebrija exists. Why, I’m not sure, but they don’t know its there. Eventually, I went in a way that looked vaguely familiar (at this point I’m already 15 minutes late for class), and found a nice woman walking her dog who did in fact know the university, and pointed me in the right way. Yay!!! But boo- by the time I got there, I was 25 minutes late, and we’re not supposed to go if we’re more than 10 minutes late. I feel like such a jerk! I’m so upset, since it’s my first day, and my phone wouldn’t let me call or text anyone, and I’m late and…you get the picture. I found my advisor, and he took me to class, and introduced me, even though I didn’t really need introducing, since it’s a small class, and I was obviously the one not there.
BUT I made it in the end, and the professor was really nice, and now I think I know where I’m going, and I’ll never be late again.
After class, Jordan, Alyssa, Melissa, and I went to la Vaguada, a big mall, and that was an adventure, but eventually we got there, and Jordan and I headed off to the Alcampo, which is pretty much the Spanish version of WalMart, and I found PEANUT BUTTER!! Totally made my day, and then we headed home. Lunch, and reading, and just hanging out for the rest of the day! Y eso fue mi dia. Lo siento por no acentos, wordpress no les gusta.
Hasta luego, un beso-
