I´ve just left school

Dear All,

Hope everyone is well and had a good February.

All is well here and as per the title, I have just finished my Spanish lessons. I managed to blag my way through 5 weeks and thankfully there is no test at the end! The lessons have been great and as I said before, our teacher Auxi is just great. For my last day which was also my birthday she took us to a local cafe for hot chocolate and chirros which are some kind of deep fried pastry that you dip into hot chocolate that has the texture of Glastonbury mud and it is a winner in my book. For our second lesson we headed to the bar and put aside all of our reservations about drinking beer at 11 in the morning and the Spanish conversation flowed thereafter. I can hardly believe it but we were talking about poverty, the healthcare systems in our countries, quantum physics, religion and reincarnation, totally amazing what a cerveca does for your language skills!

Later I had a touch more beer than was strictly necessary and felt rather rough yesterday which was a shame because I had an early start going to Ronda which is a very nice place. Of course I have forgotten to bring my camera to the internet cafe so will have to post photos later.

Here are some photo's of bits of Spain as promised.
