This week has been pretty good. Not much happened during the week really. Teaching mainly. Had trouble booking my Amsterdam flights due to a stupid and incompetant website and staff!! but all sorted now yay!!
The weekend has been busier. Friday I went to Nelly's house for lunch and to give Nelly, Jeisson, Yurani and Stiven an English class. Then I had my other private tutoring session. In the evening I made jewellery with Tania, which was fun. Although I kept melting glue onto myself and getting strings of hot glue everywhere! :-P I love making jewellery, and Tania will be teaching me more techniques soon. :-)
Saturday I had to get up early :-( as it was Ladies day!! Ladies day is an annual event for the Christian ladies from the region Extremadura. 240 women attended in total from all across the region. It was such an amazing day. I had so much fun and I was so glad and grateful that I got to be a part of it. We had a talk from a very inspiring lady, luckily Caroline translated for me. During lunch I met loads of lovely people, and managed to catch up with Madeliene from History Makers. It was great. In the afternoon we had different sessions and I went to the cooking session. It was pretty good, tho the first two courses were fishy and the last course was a really weird carrot cake type thing, though it wasn't actually a cake. It was a layer of biscuits, then a layer of carrot and coconut puree, then biscuits then the puree thing etc then you but a big pan of water on top of it and left it for 2 hours, then ate it. No cooking, or fridging or anything!! I didn't try any as I don't like carrot cake, but apparently it was ok but weird. The first I didn't try as very fishy!! The second course, although fishy was yummy and the third course was scrummy :-) The other two sessions were make up and a talk. I loved the day!
In the evening it was the youth reunion and dance practice. Next Saturday, also in Caceres is the Christian youth day, which I am going to, and doing a dance to all the Christian youth of Extremadura. Bit nervous about that, but it will be good. So we were practising the dance till midnight as it was our last chance to practise. Afterwards I stayed at Yurani's house and had a good life with Yurani, Stiven and Jorge. Jorge managed to collapse a stall he was sitting on. It was so funny, we all couldn't stop laughing. :-P
Today was church, and Gloria made these amazing mince/potato fried thingys. They were delicious. She is an amazing cook, and I love trying all the different Columbian food. After church, I went back to Caroline and Desmond's for lunch, then I had an English class, followed by my drum lesson. I'm loving learning the drums, it's so fun :-)
There's another national holiday soon, so that means a 5 day weekend!!! woop woop!! Then work for two days, then AMSTERDAM!! SO excited for Amsterdam hehehehe :-D
I'm sure you will be pleased to know that the weather is getting a bit colder and windier, but still a lot nicer than England so I'm still happy!! Tis only just light jacket weather, and I'm still wearing flip flops!! Yay!! :-D
