GO CRAZY!!!! ;o)
Ok, I know I've been too busy to actually write about what I've been doing here these 4 months, I'll get to it eventually (short version: teaching scientific English at the University). But in a packing interlude (I'm leaving tomorrow) I just wanted to share a few photos of what I did my last evening here...
I woke up this morning happy to see this:
because I hoped it would be a sign of possible snow before I left tomorrow. I had an ice-covered car 2 days ago (took me 15' to defrost it!), and was really hoping to have some snowy, goofy fun before heading south to the snowless lands.
Well this evening I was meeting friends to go ice-skating at the outdoor (but covered, it rains a lot here!) rink downtown in the Christmas market, and as I left at 18h I saw this:
(there were some Brazilians out enjoying their first snow earlier, lol!)
So, big event of the evening:
crazyness on the ice!
Helping a friend skate for the first time:
Warming up later with melted cheese:
then admiring all the snow downtown (where it almost never sticks, this is pretty rare here):
trying to catch snowflakes:
and going crazy again:
Back up on campus there was even more snow:
I hope some of it's still there in the morning so I can get some daytime shots before I go!
Now I've got to get back to my packing, and looking forward to getting home in time to hopefully still see this:
Also quite rare, to have snow-covered mountains behind Alicante! (photo taken 2 days ago by my mom)
