in Spain – in Madrid to be more precis. Alora*? – Me gusta mucho.
- With the exception of Sunday, the weather is so far the way I hoped for.
- As Spanish is written everywhere (no need to tell me that I’m stating the obvious), it’s pretty easy to pick up words:
- Un picnic para llevar (Ham sandwich, with Coke and an apple to take away)
- Una mochilla para laptop – at the beginning I was asking for un bolso until one guy said the right word for backpack – mochilla)
- Donde esta el oficina de turismo, por favor?
- Thanks to a friend who showed me around, I know a few more sentences like
- La cuenta, por favor
- Donde es el servicio, por favor?
- La mejor estacion para ir a Toledo?
- and I already ate un bocadillo con calamares.
Seriously, I like Spanish a lot and being in Spain for the first time, the vocabulary I had learned in language classes almost 4 years ago is coming back quickly.
Estube una idea muy bien de partir en Espana.**
* I know that this is not Spanish
** Theretically I know where to put the tilde “~” but the keyboard refuses to put them over the “n” and next to it, it just looks crap. Jajaja, special characters, I know – nex time.
