I have finally had a chance to sit for a few minutes and write. I have been in Granada almost a week and it has been very hard. School is intense. It is so hard to wrap my brain around this language. They have so many exceptions to the rules and then everything must have masculine and feminine plus all the verbs you have to change if you are talking about different types of people. Not to mention all the pronunciations... what a mouthful it all is at times. I certainly have had  "forget it all " moments. It feels like i will never understand it all. Not to mention to day i woke up with a cold. Not fun.

I have my classes with 2 other girls. We are all beginners. One is a 40 year old teacher from UK and man is she ever British. Complains about everything and cannot eat anything. I am amused by her stories and finicky habits. The other girl is a 22 year old Aussie from Canberra. We get a long great and have much to chat about. She woke up this morning with the same cold and so we have been going through the motions today.

The city is very beautiful and I am slowly getting my way around. I am seeing the Alhambra on Christmas day. I discovered the host family i am living with is doing nothing for Christmas as it is not a big deal to them. I am a bit miffed at the school as I told them when I first inquired that I wanted a host family so i can experience a real Spanish holiday. Well many things are not as they appeared in the brochure. As we all discover when going somewhere new.

oh well i am still  happy and excited to be in Spain and fumbling my way around.  So much to see and discover.
 
I know i said last time that i would post pics but i will still have to get to that. I am having to use the school computers as my host family has no internet and i cannot get my pics off my computer. I will get it all sorted.

Looking forward to Paris for New Year!!

catch you all up again later.
