Today is Alana's firstday of school. Yes, it's Alana :) not Lana...
I had to wake up at 7 because we have to leave at 8. Her exam was at 08:30 :) so i prepared stuff including breakfast for me :)
What a day for the metro of Cuatro Caminos to arrive later than usual :p
But it's funny because Alana is learning Spanish therefore there are things she does not know yet but we speak in Spanish even if we both speak in english. When she does not understand, i just translate it to english for her.
I brought her to the classroom where she was supposed to take her exam and boy was i early for mine... I was alone.... It was so quiet...
Here's Alana taking her exam:
And here's me killing time:
Finally Bianca arrived followed by David and Caroline... And then some one else came late. Apparently there are supposed to be more of us. 11 i think because a class will be mixed with ours... But it's minus 4... Make that 5 because Chao Liu is missing again..
During Fransisco's class we had a new student aboard, her name was Beatriz and she is from Brazil. She became my partner earlier because she did not have a book and she was right beside me but i don't mind.
After class, i looked for Alana because i have to teach her how to go home but apparently she has culture class and so i wet home ahead because TENGO MUCHO HAMBREEEEEE!!! (I'M HUNGRYYYYY!!!) oh i saw the lady with the "cruella de vil hair" for the nth time this week
When i arrived home there was salad and a sandwhich with tuna but i was really really hungry so i brought out my skyflakes, the remaining tuna spread, and cup noodles from my "boodle bag" :)
¡Madre Mia! ¿Donde esta la comidaaa?? (where's the food??) hahahaha! Wipe out :)
I was so full :) i went to my room to wait for my folks' call and then mi amorcito called me thru skype as well :) estoy contenta (i am very happy)
I rested a bit and decided to go out to check out places since i have only a few weeks left here.
I went to Chueca :) Chueca (or so i heard) is like the Gay Capital of Spain. And every year people come to celebrate the "Dia del Orgullo Gay" ( Proud Gay Day) and it will be this saturday. I came now to see what Chueca is like and there might be a nar or restaurant open that i can try out. But unfortunately everything was still closed... Yeah why wouldn't it be? It was 18:00 and it's too early to open a bar :) it's too hot still.
They're preparing for this saturday's Día/Fiesta Del Orgulloso Gay (Day/Celebration of the Proud Gay)
...which explains the rainbow flag behind me. That is the symbol of the gay community.
I walked too much i did not realize i am already in Quevedo which is a little far but who cares :) i just walked back to Granvía to check out shops. I was able to buy 2 DVDs, "El Aviador" (The Aviator - with Leo Di Caprio) and "La Milla Verde" (The Green Mile - with Tom Hanks) and ofciuese they are in Spanish. And i jist had to get ice cream. It's really too hot here.
I've always been curious as to how Limon taste like. So i ordered Limon (lemon) and Arroz con Leche (Rice with Milk) flavor... Lemon was ok... It's like frozen lemonade. The rice with milk is a little like "Champorado" but not chocolate but it was good. It had a few grains of rice in it.
After that i decided to go home...
In the metro on the way home there were these Filipino girls younger than me who were making so much noise i wanted to kick them but it was great tjat my stop was next.
And in the station i found this add of Lebara Movil and they exchanged the flags i the Philippines with Bolivia's :)
I arrived home Mama Eva was already preparing dinner.
We ate dinner at the salon :) we had the best burger patty in the world, salad, chips, etc
And por fin! I have a random shot with Irina :)
Well i am really sleepy now and i have classes tomorrow so
-- ¡Buenas Noches Madrid!
