Disfrutando de las Ultimas Semanas

"Enjoying the Final Weeks": Sidra, Jenga, Surfing and USAC love!

Our time here is winding down, and I honestly can't bear thinking about it. The good thing is we still have lots to look forward to in the final weeks.. The weather is supposed to be getting warmer, next weekend we go to Burgos, and then Morroco! Yes, the weather hasn't been too great. We were teased with perfect 75 and sunny days before spring break, and we returned home to rainy gloom! Keeping my fingers crossed for the 70 and sunny forecast on Wednesday.

However, we have been living it up, rainy weather or not, we're making the best of it! Still having fun baking and cooking.. the latest culinary endeavors have consisted of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies, Spinach, Artichoke, and Goat Cheese Strata, and of course more chocolate chip banana bread.

Speaking of food, we made yet another trip to the sidraria, Zelaia in Hernani. At 30 euro a trip, I told myself I'd only go to the sidraria once.. Here I am, round 3!

And then there was this guy....

What else have we been doing with our time? We've just been having a damn good time! It's getting hard to think about school (as it is anywhere this time of year), and easier to go out and bond with our fellow USACers. And of course practice our Spanish with locals at the bars :)

...and of course, what would a get together at the Cathedral be without roomie love? :)

Probably the best part of these past few weeks is that we've started our surfing class! Thank god for wet suits, it's been freezing, but it's been awesome. I mean, I'm not the most skilled on a surf board, but I am trying! And I LOVE the class. It's a crazy good workout, and I just am in heaven when I am out swimming in the ocean. It's sort of confirmed the fact that I HAVE to live by the ocean (but preferably a warmer one....) I'm thinkin Hawaii or Costa Rica.

Anyway, as much as I am missing some of my amazing friends and family back home, it's so hard to think we don't have that much time left. San Sebastian is such an incredible place, and I cannot imagine leaving it! Gotta live up these final weeks!!!
