Boring Blog






I definitely have the uggliest/most boring blog ever! I am still trying to figure out how to make it all cute. I really struggle with this blog thing. but I am liking it so far. And if anybody can help me out to make it all cute, please let me know! i´m desperate!

Sunday night we went to the ¨closing ceremony¨ of the fiesta in Villaviciosa. They had fireworks that were SO loud and let off SO much smoke and barely got off the ground. Then they carried this statue thing of the virgin Mary into the catholic church where everybody followed. A few words were said by the preacher and then all the women rushed up to the front and they were given flowers from around Mary. So britt and I decided to go up there and by the time we got up there all that was left were leaves...so we got leaves! haha We were laughing so hard and I´m sure people didn´t think we were funny but I dunno...maybe you had to be there.

Monday we toured more of Madrid. We went through the city hall (which was gorgeous inside), Plaza de la Villa, and the Cathedral across from the Royal Palace. It was amazing!!! The stained glass inside was so beautiful! I decided that I could take a picture of every building in Madrid because they´re all so beautiful! The architecture is unreal and it´s so old, everything is very elaborate. I love it.
So just a quick funny story. Maria Molina went with us to Madrid all day. She doesn´t speak very much English but she spoke to us all day and I think we got the gist of all she was trying to tell us. She´s so sweet!! Anyway, so she took us to one of her favorite restaurants for lunch. It was SO yummy. It´s a three course meal that you get to choose from a list of options for each course. So for dessert there was flan, this yogurt dish, or frutas y helados (fruit and ice cream). Britt said that´s what she wanted but when we told our waiter we couldn´t remember the last word ¨helado.¨ So we said frutas. He nodded his head and he asked which kind, strawberry, banana, whatever. So Britt said Banana. A few minutes later our dessert comes out and the waiter sets my flan down, Maria´s yogurt down, and for Brittney a full banana on a plate! haha we started laughing so hard. Well I was trying not to laugh so hard because I didn´t want to offend anybody. A banana for dessert? and on a plate? haha it was SO funny. So Britt had a banana for dessert. It was awesome! We have since learned ice cream in spanish so we can be sure to get what we are hoping for. pictures coming soon....
