Cine Babel


We rode our bikes to school today. I think my tires are flat because it was rough. I'm always really sweaty by the time we get to school, which isn't a HUGE problem right now because it's still pretty cold outside and I can resume resting heart rate and body heat quickly. But I'm dreading when it gets warmer. I already sweat way too easily as it is, but in a few weeks, I'm going to be drenched everyday for class. Awesome.

Today we had Cultura and Literatura. In culture we're talking about healthcare for the elderly in Spain vs. in the US, and in literature, we're learning about La Celestina, an obra written by Fernando de Rojas and a precursor to modern theatre. It's all very intriguing.

After class, Lindsey and I biked home for lunch. We had rice and garbanzos. Tasty, as always. I am going to be so spoiled when I come back home. Afterwards, I showered and then met up with Melanie to walk down to the ISA office. She, Megan and I got together to finalize our plans for the Morocco trip that we leave for early Thursday morning. We took the metro to the train station in the centro centro to buy our tickets from Madrid home on Sunday.

For dinner, I bought McDonald's because I didn't think I was going to be eating at home - the plan was to meet up with church friends. I was mistaken, however - our reunion is not until tomorrow not. So, since I'd already eaten, Macy, Jessica and I met up around 9:30. We hung out on Calle Aragón and then went to the Cine Babel (one of two theaters that shows movies in their original version) to watch Slumdog Millionaire. It was definitely the best movie I've seen in a long, long time.

I took a cab home. It smelled weird. Now I'm definitely going to sleep, because it's almost 2:00 am and I have school in the morningtime!

Viviendo la vida,

  1. Hey- I'm curious as to what they said about Spanish healthcare. Let me know! I really enjoyed your last post about Thess. Thank you for reminding us of that! I have really wanted to see Slumdog, so I'm glad you said you liked it. I'll pray for your vertigo. I'm sorry about that. Okay, I love you and miss you sooo much and want you to stay with me A LOT when you're home. Can't wait till March in Dtown :)
