Two Plane Rides Later

After hours of being confined in a plane, I am finally in Spain! We were greeted at the airport by our contact person, who happens to also be my supervising teacher (go me!), and we had a full day ahead of us! First we had to exchange our money, the money over here is very similar however their bills are all different sizes and colors which confuses me! After this we took a fast taxi ride to where we will be staying for the next 3 and 1/2 weeks. The residency is half for college aged girls and half for nuns! My mom would definitely approve. After a tour of the building and dropping off our luggage we walked to the train station (which is really a subway/bus station, with no 'trains') and got out tickets for traveling via bus to and from school. Next,we rode the bus to the bus stop that was closest to the school and had to walk the rest. The hill to get to the school puts the WKU hill to shame! We had a tour of the school and I got to see my classroom, it was more like a campus since the school is made up of different buildings. After our tour we were able to stop at grocery store for some necessities and then walked back to our residency for our free time! It is currently 3:30 here and I am ready for dinner and bed! I am having a great first day though!! Tomorrow I will get to meet my students and have my first day of class! The picture is the view from my window in my apartment. The building right across the street is a hospital. We were informed that it is where Shakira had her baby, no big deal! Spain is so beautiful! Please continue to pray for me.
