La Peluquería

Woke up this morning around 8:20, after having gone to sleep close to 4:00, and got some coffee and breakfast. We hurried to class, and were still late by 10 minutes, but it didn't matter because our profesor was just getting there too. Today we had Composición and Literatura. In between, I grabbed a cappuccino and a coke because I was STILL not awake.

After class, we came home for lunch. We had spaghetti and  salad, but for some reason, I wasn't very hungry so I didn't eat much. When we were done, Lindsey and I headed out to find a pharmacy so I can try to get rid of my cold and the noises in my stomach. On our way, we were just exploring the streets when we came across, at LONG LAST, a hair salon (peluquería) that was open during the siesta. We stopped in to make an appointment, and they had us in the chairs before we knew what was going on! Lindsey got her hair cut and colored, and I just got mine colored. Nothing drastic, more my natural color with a hint of red. But they were having a special on colors, so it was only 15 euros!

After the hair salon, we found a pharmacy, and I had to explain through guttural noises what was wrong with my stomach, because I honestly don't know how to explain it well in English, much less in Spanish!

We came home, and I headed to the park to run. I ran from around 5:30 to 7:00 - which seems like, but I stopped for a little bit to say hi to some friends playing soccer down the park. I got home and showered. For dinner, we had pura de patata y calabaza (potato and pumpkin purée) with deviled tuna eggs and tuna and mayonnaise on bread. We also had leftover pastel de calabaza (pumpkin cake/pie), which as always, was allllll so delicious.

When we'd finished eating, Lindsey and I came back upstairs to get ready to go out with Miguel, our host brother. But after having gotten around 4 hours of sleep, taking no siesta, and running for 1.5 hours, you can imagine how tired I was. I realized this and decided to stay in. I got to skype with Tim, Natalie, and Mary Ev! (for the millionth, billionth time).

Now I'm about to get some much needed shut-eye.

Hasta mañana,
