Last weekend I went to Madrid to meet Caity and Andy. Stayed three nights and we had a great time. Didn't see much daylight.
Also last week was completely beautiful, 80+ degrees, sunny, and the flowers were blooming. I took a hike with a friend of mine in La Rioja and it was beautiful. I only got a couple pictures because my battery died on my camera.
Other than that haven't done much traveling or blog worthy things the past few weeks but I have a few updates.
Next week is my last week before Semana Santa, during which my dad will be here and we will be traveling.
After that I have just one more month left in Spain before traveling and heading to Portland. I am going to miss all the friends I have made here, and I will miss Spain in general. It is a bittersweet goodbye, because I am also looking forward to what is coming next.
When I get back to Oregon on July 20th I will be rushing to get my visa completed within 30 days because by being in the USA less than 35 days in a 12 month period I will save a lot on my 2011 taxes. So my current plan is to fly to Puebla Mexico after those 30 days and stay there for a month and a half. I have made a bunch of friends from Puebla during my time here in Spain. Also the cost of living is much lower than most other places I could go, and I have always wanted to go to Latin America.
Also here is an article I recently had published.
