Another good week here in Spain. So, where should I start.... One of my friends from home asked why the Spanish don’t have lunch at school. Well, to tell you the truth I really don’t know for sure, I know that they have a little snack at school and then when they get home they have a really big lunch and siesta (afternoon rest) and later a small dinner. I can’t live like that so I have a big lunch and a huge dinner. I also had one of my friend’s askewhat the kids in Spain are like. Not too different, but at school they really work on their penmanship because they use boleys that is Spanish for pen and they can’t mess up. I mean they spend a really long time on their writing and their papers, even their drafts look like works of art. Everyone plays soccer, they call it futbol, and they are really good. They also play on pavement so they can’t dive. They also have to take English and French in 5th grade. The school is very small and I have 3 grades in my class, but I still only have 10 kids in my class. I have a crush on one of them her names Nayara and you probably cant pronounce it, well try this Ny-ar-a.
Here is a little Spanish lesson for you:
uno,dos,tres,cuatro,cinco,seis,siete,ocho,nueve and diez
that’s one.two,three,four,five,six,seven,eight and ten
spoon is cuchara, knife is cuchilla, fork is tenedor, plate is plato, table is mesa, kitchen is cocina, bed is cama, night table is mesita de noche, and pencil is lapiz.
Well, that is just about enough Spanish for today.
adios amigos, Porter
