Sarah and I just got back from dinner. The Feli Show today was about teen pregnancy and then morphed into abortion which was an interesting topic. For the past couple nights, Feli was getting a little better with dinners aka she gave us a salad the size of a baseball (ill take what greenery i can get) and nothing was fried for 2 days...until tonight. i had the stingrays again dangit. my stomach queezes (sp?) at the thought of any type of food that has oil on it. sarah and i decided to go for a run in the park slash river yesterday despite the frisky weather. after 15 minutes id say what i was doing was somewhere between a dry heave and heartburn considering how out of shape ive gotten in these past 10 days so far...time to check out that gym i think before my poor arteries clog up.
in other news, we had a very fun-filled weekend because it was our first viaje! wahoooo we went to Xátiva which is where they always take the program kiddos on their first weekend. it's a small city (my dad whose been to Spain many times never even heard of it) where they have a cool castle at the top of a mountain.
first we went to a museum which was pretty standard--paintings, sculptures, mini replica of the city back in the ancient days. pretty neat except it wouldve been a liiiittle more interesting had they explained some stuff instead of just dumping us in there for an hour but oh well. before scaling the
small hill mountain, we stopped in a cathedral where two popes came out of! of course then we started a very scholarly discussion over the history of the papacy (if only we had taken religious studies...) in which we did not come to too many conclusions. anywaysssssssss
|we did it! :)|
after the church we started on what we thought was a slight incline but turned out to be a little more than that.
since i am still camera-less (going tomorrow to get one!), jeannie let me borrow (play with?) hers for the trip. i realized how much fun you can have with those things! all the scenery and nature pics looked 93847 times better with the cool settings and we became semi-obsessed with figuring out what looked coolest with what setting. i wanted to try out all the cool settings cuz i knew they were on there somewhere even though most people don't even know how to use them) so here's some of my favsies from the trip.
|my mama would be proud|
|yummy fresh fruta!|
|jean's personal fave..the miniature effect!|
now im (sadly) off to do some homework even though i really wish i could be watching last night's episode of desperate housewives and drinking a café..ugh the realization of classes es no buenoooo. hasta luego!
