Hey Sanchez Lastra!

Wow, it has been a long time, but I finally writing to all of you from Madrid.  Living here has been a big change from Oviedo, but I have really enjoyed it (especially with all of the concerts, events and things to do in a big city like this one!)  This year I’m working at a primary school, and with students who are only six years old.  I find myself repeatedly teaching vocabulary like “rubber”, “pencil sharpener” and “notebook”, and unfortunately I think presenting a class on graffiti this year will be quite difficult ;).  Although I am enjoying my new job here, I admit I miss working with all of you in Mieres, both students and professors.  I’ve heard that Cristen is doing a wonderful job there, and I hope all of you hooligans are treating her well (key: look up the word hooligan).

I received some emails from a few of you this summer, and I want to apologize for not responding.  I was traveling most of the summer without access to a computer or internet and couldn’t reply to those awesome messages.  I hope all of your summers were nice and relaxing, and that you spoke some English as well.  As for me, after working in the Pyrenees Mountains for a month, I travelled to Budapest and started an incredible trip through Hungary, Poland, and East Germany.  As you all know I love History, and it was amazing to be in places with so much powerful history to learn.  After that, I flew to London where I began a “hitch-hiking” trip with my friend from California.  I think “hitch-hiking” in Spanish is “auto stop”, but I could be mistaken.  Anyway, we hitch-hiked all the way to the Isle of Skye, a beautiful island in the Scottish Highlands, where we spent a week camping and living like vagabundos.

Thanks to all of you, I was able to take many great photos with my incredible new camera!  The gift all of you gave me inspired me to be very excited about photography, and I want to thank of you again for such a generous gift.  When I think about my year in Sanchez Lastra, I have the best memories and know that all of you have bright futures ahead of you.  With this post I have uploaded some pictures from my summer, and I hope you enjoy them.  Also, I still have access to the blog and would love to hear from you guys – about the school year, travels, your plans for University (for those in Bachillerato) and of course some new music!

Un abrazo fuerte desde Madrid, y seguro cuando subo al Asturias nos verémos en Mieres! (I hope that was correct!)

Hi Alex,

You don’t seem to have got bored at all during the summer, huh? Your pictures look fantastic! You must have had a wonderful time visiting all those places.

I’m very glad to hear you are doing fine in Madrid. Your school this year is very lucky indeed. Having such a devoted language assistant is just a luxury. We all miss you around here, but you are very right: our new language assistant, Cristen, is also doing a great job. I always wonder why on earth we are always so fortunate in our school!

Enjoy your year in Madrid, Alex, and don’t forget to come up here for a visit. We’ll love to see you and have a long chat.

Take care,

Marga

Hey Alex,
If you wonder why I’m writing another comment …It is because Pili told us to do it again. How are you? Are you happy in Madrid? We have got a new teacher from Georgia and she’s called Cristine. But although we have a new teacher we’re still missing you very much. I hope you come back soon to visit us.
I saw the video ¿western? we did in Almeria. It is very fun and you did very well hahaha but I don’t understand that couple were walking in the middle of the fight and we were shooting our guns and we couldn’t kill them hahaha. Well I hope to see you soon. Bye, Bye¡¡¡
