Coro Gloria

This morning was a bit slow. It was a rainy and cloudy day outside. I woke up around 11:00 and read my book for a little while, and also worked on my papers. I've mentioned it before, but that's the shame about rainy days. It's just so hard to get around without a car.

For lunch at 2:00, we had vegetable soup with bread and for dessert, strawberries with condensed milk. It was delicious!

After lunch, I showered and then hung out in my room, doing some homework. Also, Marta and Matilde, after lunch, had lent me some movies to watch, and so I watched a little bit of Los Lunes al Sol, with Spain's very own Javier Bardem. It was nice to practice my Spanish that way. Entertainment mixed with learning!

Around 7:20, I headed up to Estació del Nord to meet Macy and Jessica. We bought our tickets and then headed back to Sueca for the second time in 3 days. There was a Coro Gloria concert there at 8:30. Our friend Robin sings in the choir.

We got there around 8:10, and Anne met us at the station. We then walked to the Casa de Cultura and found seats. The concert began right on time, and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! Robin was so fun to watch, too. He's tall and kind of lanky, and has beautiful dark hair to his shoulders. He was just singing his little heart out. They sang African American spirituals. WOW! You can see Robin in the pictures... He's the tall dark headed guy in the middle!

We left Sueca on the last train of the night around 10:50, and got to Valencia around 11:20. From there, I walked the 20 minutes home down Rusafa/Sapadores to Calle Molina no 4. Once inside, I hung out with the fam in the living room for a little bit, then excused myself to my room to get some not-so-much needed shuteye.

Amando la música negra,
