March 13, 2017 Summertime

Okay I'm going to make this one short and sweet cause writing emails feels like such a chore now haha.

This week we finally found some service to do, we helped an old investigator named Fransuah organize the top floor of his building. This guy has a four story piso that he has been remodeling for the past 10 years. It has 10 rooms that he rents out to random people. Its actually really cool and he has put a ton of work into it. Its by far the nicest building I have seen here in Spain. Still that's not saying much though. The thing I've learned about Spain is that it's a first-world country on the outside but on the inside it's third-world. They are really good at faking it though haha. Anyways so this guy has been remodeling this place and using the top floor for all the building materials. Tiles, sand, concrete, random furniture he's found on the street, you name it. So we came and moved everything around. It was a good workout lifting all the concrete mix and sand bags. 30 minutes a day without any weights just doesn't quite cut it, I'm getting weak 😂 yeah but it was fun and he told us all sorts of funny story's.

Oh yeah there was also a riot thing in the street this week because the students here want more vacation days. I don't know why though there is already like at least one holiday per month here 😂 and their school starts at 8:30 and goes till 1:30, ridiculous...

Thursday we had a bbq for Diana Palominos birthday, it was pretty fun. She turned 20 and I was thinking like wow that's so old, then I realized I'll be that age in 4 months. I don't want to grow up 😭 while we were there though a water pipe right next to us just like burst. Hernan and us tried to fix it forever but couldn't get it to stop, soaking wet we finally gave up and just called the police to figure it out haha.

Friday and Saturday we had intercambios in Elda this week. It was pretty cool I got to teach this awesome Colombian family. Its cool to hear all of these peoples different story's of coming to Spain. Always really interesting, this country is a mixing pot we have met people from almost every part of the world.

This whole week has been super hot, it's crazy it feels like a switch flipped. Like a week or so ago we were wearing jackets for the mornings and after it got dark. Now during that time it feels like the middle of summer 😅 I'm scared for actual summer. Going to die haha

Well anyways that's about all. Today it's pouring rain so we can't really do anything for P day outside. We are just hanging out at the mall.
Love you all!
