Last week!

I have less than one week left in Salamanca! I’m a little bit sad to be leaving, but mostly excited to go home. I’ve never been away from home for this long. This week is going to be crazy busy because I have five finals on Monday and Tuesday, class Wednesday and Thursday, Nocheveija Thursday night, and then I leave for the airport late Friday. Nocheveija means “Old Night” and it is the Spanish celebration of New Year’s Eve. Yes, Nocheveija is December 31, but here in Salamanca students celebrate it the day the semester ends (December 15). Traditionally at midnight, twelve grapes (or raisins) are eaten to symbolize every month of the year and for good luck.

I need to start packing and studying for finals!

Hasta luego,

A.
