Spain is in the Air

Scenes from Oviedo

Hi Meltingpot Readers,

Sorry, I don’t have time to write much today. I’ve been running around to meetings all over campus today, with babygirl in tow. That’s right, no babysitter means Professor Mommy is in full effect. And el esposo is unavailable for the next 48 hours as he prepares to take his comprehensive exams towards his PhD in Spanish linguistics on Saturday. I hope he passes!!!

But, that’s not why I’m feeling all giddy with possibility. Despite the craziness that my life is right now, I’m so excited because I proposed to teach a travel writing class at our Temple campus in Spain next summer and it looks like it might actually happen. *fingers crossed twice* It’s not 100 percent confirmed, but if the stars align and enough students sign up, Ms. Meltingpot and the crew will be spending five weeks in Oviedo, Spain next summer.

I’ll keep you posted. Gotta run for now.

Happy weekend, everyone.

    Yep, I fell during nearly 8 miles into a half marathon. grr! I plan on spending all of my weekends outside of Salamanca. I thought it was a beautiful city, but I perfer Valladolid and Madrid! Never been to Avila, so I will be checking it out for sure. Have to get to the north coast as well, having only been to the south coast. (Malaga and Tarifa)

  2. Woo hoo! So exciting!

        That would be crazy. I have to spend 2 summers in Salamanca. I was supposed to spend 2011 and 2012. But I broke my arm and leg 4 weeks before the 2011 course started. And to think, I would would already have my Masters by now! I have been to Salamanca before but only for a day trip. I have spent a semester in Madrid and a summer in Valladolid!

          You broke an arm and a leg? Ouch!! Salamanca in the summer is filled with tourists and international students. Not a whole lot of Spaniards. But it’s an awesome place to study Spanish…in any season.
