This week has been eventful to say the least. Started off like a normal week with work and chilling in the lovely sun. Then came Thursday...... I was invited to a friends house for lunch, so got on the bus for the 30 min ride, had a great lunch with friends and practised my Spanish, then went to get the bus to work. Went to get on the bus, and the driver decided to shut the doors on me! Literally on me, sooooooo painful! Went to work, took painkillers, then by the evening the pain was so bad I was taken to hospital. Turns out I have a cracked rib! Ouch! I'm ok apart from the constant pain.
Saturday was a pretty good day. Went to another friends house for lunch, then off to Caceres in the evening for the YWAM graduation. It was great to see my friends graduate from an awesome programme, loved it. And I may be doing the same next year......
Sunday I went to Olivenza with the family I live with. This weekend was the first Bull fighting weekend in the whole of Spain. Apparently it's very famous and lots of famous bull fighters come to fight with bulls. So I decided to go watch it. The family don't like it, so they wandered around Olivenze while I was in the Plaza de Torros. It was pretty interesting, and I did enjoy it. Though I hated it when they hurt and killed the bull. Seemed unnecessary to be honest. The rest of the time though it just looked like they were dancing with the bull, which was pretty cool. I was sat next to two old Spanish ladies, who explained to me what was happening and what to do at certain times, like wave a white hanky when the ear is cut off. And guess who was watching the bull fight?! The President of Spain!! He was sat opposite me so took some sneaky pictures hehe.
So pretty much a good week, though it has been tainted by pain. Hopefully the pain will go soon. Just got a relaxing week this week so that should help.
Oh yeah, the weather has been amazing!! Hehe
