kisses, food and above 30 degrees
Day 1 in my host family
So saturday morning we had to wake up at 6 in the moring, and they said we had to take the bus from 7 oclock. But I gues its normal here that time isnt that important. So at 7.30 we were on our way to the next busstation. And there they told us: the people for the bus to Bilbao have to wait 3 houres, we leave at 11. So after three houres of waiting, talking, getting to know eachother a bit better, we finaly left. And the busdrive I slept most of the time, but when I was looking outside you could see an amazing vieuw. The landscape is so beautyfull.
At 4 oclock we arrived, and I could see my host parent waiting for me and the nerves started to. Because in the hotel everybody spoke english, but now i had to speak spanish. So i stepped out of the bus and directly got hugged and kissed. About that kisses, everbody greeds you with kisses (dos besos), the other children, the men and the women, hello and goodbye. Everybody!
And then it started, my host family is so nice and they explain and repaid everything for my. First they gave me a tour around the house, which is huge! And so beautyfull and after that we went swimming in our pool (gehehe Ive got a pool).
I was exhaused the first day, I could understand anything. It felt like I forgot everything that Id learn. And that day was so hard, I really questioned myself, can I do this?
So I could sleep till 10 and I gave myself a good peptalk " common you can do this, you'll learn it and go on!". So the day started with ofcourse... more food!
They eat really differnent here:
You start with desajunar, which is bread with jam or ham.
Then around 3 you have comer. Which is what i know as dinner. So salad with pasta or rice and meat, lots and lots of meat.
After that around 6 you have merendar. This is just small things like shrimps or something like that.
And at 9 or 10 o'clock it time for cenar, and this is warm food again, a piece of meat or an egg or something.
I really don't mind eating 4 times a day, because the food here is soo goooddd <3
So on day two we went for a 'walk' in the área, what turned out to be 2 hours of walking. But its so so so gorgeous out here. Even though its 30-35 degrees, I loved the walk so much. We climed all the way to a cave and the dog, trusca, came along haha.
And in the evening we went to my tio and tia (uncle and aunt) and their two cuteeee children. I played the whole time with their 6 year old daughter. And she taught me so much, just by showing me words and explain it on many different ways. And after that we went back home again, ate and I went to bed because I love it here, but its so exhausting.
Bilbao time! Me and my hostmom left to Bilbao in the morning to explore the city, and its soo beautyfull! We went to see the gugenheim and the university. And after walking around for a couple off hours, we went to buy a new card for my phone. And litterly everthing went wrong, so we tried for 2 hours in the store to get my internet working, but it didnt. So we were going to get back later. First we went to my other tia, blanca, and her children, Amaia and Enero. Blanca is such a nice women! So after comer we went back to the phone store again, and it still didint work, one hour later we went to Samsung. They needed 5 minutes and now it workes haha. (if you want my number Facebook me).
And in the evening I went with Amaia to her friends, but they talk so fast and I didnt understand it. But I got to say, my spanish is improving so fast. I think in a month ill be able to talk normal hahaha.
Soo kinda a long blog hihi. But these were my first three days.
Not wrong not right, but different
(though this might be funny)
- ALMOST NONE BIKES
- eating 4 times instead of 3
- if there are bikes, they're mountainbikes
- The electicion netwerk is above the ground
- or everybody know everybody or it just looks and sounds like that
- lots of kisses haha in saying hello and goodbye
- not many trafficlight but many stop signs
