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-


ps. Thank you for leaving me comments!!  I love reading them- they remind me of home, and make me happy!

    Yes peanut butter does not exist in Europe (at least, not the way it is ubiquitous in the US)…they have Nutella instead!
