To briefly recap, I was in New York and Connecticut for the last two weeks and it was one of the best trips ever. It was amazing to see all my good friends and it certainly didn't hurt to see my incredible boyfriend :)
This year is about to explode.
Today I walked around the city center of Murcia with Inma and attempted to understand everything she was trying to tell me in Spanish. I think the first couple weeks I am here might be confusing and overwhelming because communicating is very difficult. But I will enroll for a Spanish class tomorrow although it doesn't begin until the end of February.
None of the communication difficulties worry me though because of what I get to feast my eyes on. The city is gorgeous and incredible and more than I ever thought it would be. I forgot my camera today (I suck) but there will be photos soon. Murcia (pronouced "Murrrrr(rolling)theeea") is in a valley so it is surrounded by mountains AND we are merely 14 minutes from the ocean.
They told me today that in the summer they move up to Santiago, which is on the Atlantic coast and stay in a house the is only feet away from the ocean. Also, Inma said she will take me to see where Voley Murcia plays and hopefully I can meet some of the girls and practice with them when my knees heal.
This year is about to fly by and it is about to be EPIC!!!!
Me encanta Espana y me encanta voleibol
