Time flies when you're having fun, by Rhonda Crittle, CIEE Palma de Mallorca

The days are passing so quickly, and my schedule has filled up. More and more everyday I have more assignments, appointments, and activities. This week was hectic but fun. Still, I am so happy to begin my FOUR day weekend, friday to monday.

And what a schedule it is! Classes, excursions, and play dates. Yes, play dates! Twice a week, I have the opportunity to visit two young girls, ages 3 and 5, at their home to play with them and speak english. So far, I have been to play 3 times, and I really enjoy my time with them. The girls are very bright and the family is so genuine. It's nice to have an outlet or another place to go, aside from campus and home. In honor of the holiday weekend, we had a party, and I was actually able to find and buy a pumpkin for them. They were thrilled.

Lastly, I just want to share this YouTube video of Tenia Tanto que Darte, a song by Nena Daconte. By chance, I saw this video in the gym one day, and the song was stuck in my head for about a week. Finally, today, I was able to find the song and more info about the singer. Check it out, but be careful. You won't be able to get it out of your head!

A great day for a 10k! by Rhonda Crittle, CIEE Palma de Mallorca

20 euros to register
31 euros to get a race chip
56 minutes to experience it all

Being an international "marathon" runner for the day, PRICELESS!

10k

"¡Uno de cada, por favor!" by Rhonda Crittle, CIEE Palma de Mallorca


Last night we went out for tapas and enjoyed the final night of the TaPalma tapas festival.
 
Tapalma 1
 
Its similar to Restaurant Week in DC with a specific menu at a special price, except the menu actually is reasonable, no more than 2 euros per item, drinks as well.
 
Tapalma2
The festival is hosted by 45 different restaurants over 5 days.
 
Tapalma3
There are so many restaurants that they are separated on a map into four different routes, Ruta Centre, Ruta Santa Catalína, Ruta La Llonja, and Ruta Plaça Espanya.
 
Tapalma4
We stayed on Ruta Santa Catalína for the evening and went to three different restaurants for samples of their best tapas.
 
Tapalma5
I had a very flavorful piece of white fish with tomato, a delicious portion of grilled calamari on a baguette, and a rich eggplant parmesan.
 
Tapalma6
I love everything about the festival.
 
Tapalma7
 
You choose.
Tapalma8
You chat.
 
Tapalma9
You eat.
 
Tapalma10
You go, on to the next restaurant to do it all again.
 
Tapalma11
Tapalma12
Tapalma13
Tapalma14
Tapalma15
My kind of night!
