During Spring/Easter break I’ve been in Alicante visiting family. We got to see the Semana Santa festivities and floats and took day trips to Cartagena to the south and Altea to the north. My grandparents also came to visit and we had the best time. I have been missing my family in the States and seeing them really was wonderful. Alicante has such a different feel compared to Logroño. It’s much more metropolitan, touristy, and of course, mediterranean. The palm trees, beach, and architecture give it a resort feel at times and tourists can be spotted a mile away. Walking along the bay you can hear 6 different languages at a time, from Valencian and Spanish, to English, German, Russian, and Greek. It’s pretty cool as someone who loves languages to just people watch and listen.
Life is good. I’ve been keeping busy with studying for my HSK 3/B1 Mandarin test and enjoying work. The kids are hilarious and a handful as always. We recently went on a field trip to Berganzo to do the 'ruta del agua' hike--a beautiful 1 hour hike along a stream ending at a waterfall. The kids had fun and only one person fell in- so we (the teachers) counted it as a successful trip. ;)
