Jun 5, 2008 - Cadiz, Spain

Buenos Dias! {KIT: Yesterday was our ‘sea’ day so we slept in (till 8am – wow) and just relaxed. I got a pedicure and watched out the window as the dolphins played next to the ship. Very cool. I also watched the guest chef Marisol do a demo on making garlic shrimp and a Chorizo dish. This was the 2nd demo I’ve attended and boy do they get crowded. I think all the old people go just to get more free food! Right after that I took a ‘hands on’ class with the chef of the fancy restaurant on board and Marisol again. What a deal. $29 and we...

Feb 11, 2008 - Carnaval in Cadiz, come and gone!

Hello everybody! Wow... it has been a little while since I have been in touch! Since I last sent an update, I have completed two more weeks of class, and have braved the infamous festival of Carnaval in Cadiz, Spain! School is going very well. It's still a little bit challenging because the Andalucian accent here is so thick and so very different from the Spanish accent that I have grown accustomed to in Texas. I am really enjoying my class of Fonetica y Fonologia because it is helping me to understand and speak better Castallano Spanish....

Jul 30, 2007 - Cádiz

I said goodbye to Micha today after another walk around Seville and lunch at our 'local' tapas bar. I tried to find accommodation in Cádiz online so that I didn't have to lug all my gear around when I got there, but found nothing - uh oh! Fortunately I didn't have too much trouble though, finding a place, and it was less than €60 - the rare rooms online were all over €100! It was a lovely little place too, and the rooms were given names, rather than numbers! I was in 'Viva la Pepe'!! Cádiz is another great little town. It could be the...

Jul 10, 2006 - Cadiz

The night before I had the honour of watching the finals of the world cup in a small hole in the wall bar. Filled with old and young spaniards all booing France, and cheering for Italy. It was very cool. The 1 Euro beer with the game was also a nice change. So what did I think of the game. Well, I wasnt sure who to cheer for, on one hand i wanted to cheer for italy as I cheered for them in Barcelona, but then again, I do like France. Then with a minute or two left in overtime my decision was made up, Go Italy. See Zidane, the star player...

May 17, 2006 - Tarifa

Tarifa is a surf town on the coast of southern Spain-you can see africa from it's beaches. you could pick up this town and move it to southern california and no one would know the difference. Surf shops, wind surfers, and huge sandy beaches (topless by the way). This is all great except for the 40-60 mile and hour winds that are constantly blowing. I am serious when i say this-it can blow you down. On the beach yesterday i felt like i was in a sand storm-the sand felt like bullet against your skin. Your eyelids flap in the wind! Just kinda...

So Many Roads...

Aug 17, 2005 - Cadiz, SPAIN

On our way to Cadiz, we stopped at Palos de Frontera, near Huelva, the spot where Columbus' first voyage left from. We boarded the repicas of the Nina, Pinta, and the Santa Maria. What struck us immediately about the ships is how small they were and how little privacy anyone had for such a long voyage. It was one of those weird moments when you realize that all that stuff you learned in 5th grade really happened...and how extraordinary it was. We stopped for a few days in Cadiz, one of the oldest cities in Europe, which has changed hands...

Jul 27, 2005 - becca golf Tarifa n more booze

So my second time to Malaga airport in three days saw beccas arrival. There we were with our sign "MALAGA VD CLINIC" and she came straight to us, i am hoping that she saw our faces rather than the sign... We whisked her off to the mountains to the AlAhurin Golf Hotel where we were statying for two nights.. Glof was booked for the following day and a very easy evening was had in the hotel restaurant and a very early night. An even earlier morning for Becca, now Fi and I are used to Becca laying in at the weekend, even on a school day, but...

Jan 23, 2005 - Vejer de la Frontiera

Our bus passes through many small towns as we wind our way down the coast of Spain. The towns are somewhat drab looking and unappealing and we´re relieved each time the bus carries on out of the towns. We´re on our way to Vejer, a small hilltop town. In the distance on a hill we spot a gleaming white town and hope that it is our destination. It is Saturday afternoon and we´ve landed in this beautiful town where everything is closed up tight. Our town map is unreadable, we have no hotel listing, we are starving and everywhere we look it is...
