“I Will Miss”
I will miss Spain’s closeness. I will miss the fact that the personal bubble does not exist here. I will miss sleeping from two-thirty to three everyday and the countless cafés that are shining around every corner. I will miss Aquarius with it’s magical healing powers. I will miss my teachers who know little English and who are very caring. The language barrier is thick, but that’s what makes it fun and makes you learn a lot. I will miss Sophia with her cheery smile and warm personality. I will miss going on excursions and seeing things I would never come close to seeing in the United States. I will miss the home stay environment and the subtle differences of living. I will miss the Plaza Mayor. I will miss saying the expression “meet Debajo del reloj”. I will miss spending time after class in the plaza.
Lastly, I will miss the great friends I made on this trip. I will miss the time we spent, the laughs we had, and the connections we made. I will miss you Salamanca. I will miss you Spain I will miss the time we had.
