She said, Louise your package is here and it wasn’t taken by customs!! It had some things I wished I had brought and gifts for my host family and friends.
December 31st, 2016 New Years had arrived and the famous 12 grapes tradition rang true!!
This photo was taken on the steps of the Spanish Embassy on the day that I applied for my student visa.
I remember having so many butterflies in my stomach; I was so excited for the adventure that was to come.
America intervened in the situation in Cuba as a result.
Cubans were in deep trouble after the failed and unorganized attempt at revolting from the Ten Years War, alongside a revolt held just a few years prior to the Spanish American War.Spain had a deep distaste for America, at the time, for sympathizing with the Cubans wish for independence, so a war was launched between the two countries.Facts about the Spanish American War: The Spanish American war was a prominent time period and battle for the history of not just Spain and America, but Cuba as well.Usually the entire friend group gets together and rarely hangs out in a house.We also go out much later (9pm to around 1am) because in the afternoon there’s sports or classes.There was also discrimination in judicial proceedings when giving evidence against Muslims.Moreover, Christians and Jews had to pay a special tax, while males who were non-Muslims did not join the military.I have a second home here in Villanueva de la Serena, and I couldn’t be happier about it.The Spanish American War was a conflict between Spain and America which took place in 1898.You eat one grape for each month, with only seconds between each grape. In these past 5 months I have learned so much, I have made so many friends, I have faced challenges that have honestly changed me as a person, and I have grown up in ways I didn’t know were possible. I had no familiarity and it was on me to get through that and to find and make some.In all honesty it’s quite the choking hazard, especially because the grapes had seeds. That may have been the most alone I’ve ever felt in my life. It’s getting over feelings like that, that have truly made me grow up as a person.
