Paella yum!

Initially I was very nervous to travel alone, but my sister had suggested that I look into a language school.  To be perfectly honest, I didn't even know these existed until I had begun to do some research.  I ended up enrolling in Lacunza in San Sebastian, Spain.  I was very nervous about starting my first day this past Monday.  What if I'm the only one that doesn't speak much Spanish, what if everyone has been there for a while and already friends? what if I'm 10 years older than most of the other students?I dreaded taking the placement exam.  But I survived and was appropriately placed in room 2.  My classmates are awesome, very smart and funny and we are all around the same level of understanding.  It's an interesting group off international people (yes it's weird to be considered international......)  there are two Sweeds, two Dutch, an Australian, a Brit, and a Canadian and me.

I love going to the classes it's very fun and relaxed.  The first evening, Simon, Rob and I went and ate some Pintxo before joining the rest of the school at the welcome party at Burunda Cafe.  Thankfully most of the other students can also speak English so we were able to all converse much easier than with primarily with Spanish.  Last night I met up with many of the other students at the beach for a few hours before a bunch of us headed out for paella. Since there were 7 of us, they served our meal to us family style.  It was gigantic and we almost could have eaten it all.
