Pinch me, is it real? Each day we are still amazed that we are living our dream!

It feels surreal as we are walking around town or sitting at a little outdoor café. We are here, we are living in Spain!  Oh, what a feeling that is. I could spend hours just people watching and listening in on conversations. Trying to figure out what is being said, what people do and where they are going.

The other morning, Alan had a Dr. appointment and I waited outside at one of the many sidewalk cafés available. I just planted myself down and for a measly 2, I ordered a cafe con leche and tostado con marmelada.(YUM) It was warm and sunny.  I made sure when selecting my seat, I faced all of the foot traffic to people watch to my heart’s content.

I was also fortunate enough to have others at the tables near by. The table next to me were 2 German men (I guessed that by eavesdropping). At the table behind me was a very elderly woman with a cane sitting alone. Another lady came to join her and I could instantly tell they were speaking French. Oh it was so much fun trying to figure out what they were saying. It’s funny I took 2 yrs of French in high school, yet I know far more Spanish. Either way, I understood some of what they were saying and now I can’t wait to go to France too.

I love the diversity in our little town, there are people from all over the place. Of course mainly Spanish, but also a good population of German, Dutch, French and English as well. Oh, this is so exciting and we are so happy to be here.  We haven’t had a dull moment to speak of. The people are so friendly and the views are to die for in every direction.  I am one Happy Camper!

  1. I love that you have these questions! I am drafting some posts on these very things, so they will be up in the next week or so. In brief, Spanish is filtering into our home lives little by little. it is cute to see the kids mix spanish into an english sentence. we are getting there!

Come on and tell us what you think!
