Today I wake up at 8.15, take a shower and go buy breakfast for us, while Rodri is still sleeping. I have two successful shopping dialogues, which makes me quite proud and I understand my students once more. Learning a new language can be difficult, but when you notice that you’re understood, it’s such a great feeling.
It’s difficult to wake Rodrigo up before 10am, but somehow I manage. We have to bring our suitcases to the main bus station and store them there. At 10, we meet Atousa and Lena again for some Porras with lots and lots of hot chocolate sauce, a typical Spanish breakfast.
In Vienna, Rodrigo and I always have discussions about how one cannot have breakfast at 1pm anymore. In Spain, it can easily happen. So I am not surprised when we only set off at around 12 to have breakfast. I don’t even question it anymore.
Today we decide not to take any public transport and walk into the city centre, looking the most touristy that is possible, equipped with cameras, lenses, belts and what not. So here we go: Sevilla in pictures (Rodri’s and mine)!
Actually, I gave up blogging a while ago. It just took up too much of my time. Choosing photos, editing, etc. is not easy if you’re an absolute perfectionist and at the same time have to grade tons of exams and papers.
Here I am though, enjoying the beauty of Andalucia. Rodrigo convinced me it’d be nice for his and my family to read about what we’re up to. Which is why for the first time ever the entries will be in English, so that his family can read this too (and my family can have loads of fun with google translate fails!).
I’ll keep it simple this time, publish on the go, add a couple of randomly chosen pictures, maybe not even edited (let’s see how long I can handle this…) and a few words about the highlights.
З Новим роком ! – Frohes neues Jahr!
Den Start ins neue Jahr am 1. Jänner habe ich multikulturell überstanden – mit einem traditionell ukrainisch-österreichisch-spanischem Fest in zwei verschiedenen Zeitzonen… Da in der Ukraine gestern nun auch offiziell das orthodoxe neue Jahr begonnen hat, wird es Zeit für eine kleine Zusammenfassung meines Urlaubs dort.
