So far, my first two weeks in Villanueva have been filled with fun and adventure. When I arrived, I have to admit that I was shocked at the scorching heat. Given, I had heard it was hot but I definitely wasn’t expecting 40C! The last few weeks have been a transition in regards to the heat, but at the very least it’s not humid.
Getting used to Spain hasn’t been nearly as difficult as I was expecting. The accent in Andalusia is not as different as the Spanish I speak in the United States with my friends, so the transition hasn’t been difficult. However, I was incredibly shocked when I saw horses casually strolling through town!
Last weekend was also la Féria chica. It was incredible amounts of fun, and I was surprised at how late the party went on for! The music was amazing, and I definitely ate my fair share of buñuelos. It was also very nice because it seemed like the entire town was there, so I was able to see both students and parents alike enjoying themselves.
Well, that’s all for now! Stay tuned for more updates!
