LOL. well if I do go to Spain for a year to study, i'll probably get teased because I dont like to hang out in clubs, etc. (one year shy of drinking age, but I doubt i wll be much of a bar hopper).

Well, I actually like being in church with a full crowd. It seems like that's the only time when most people actually go. Our church does songs in Spanish, German, Portuguese, Tagalog, and Korean. Our Pastor even has a Portuguese nativity scene set up each year (he's from the Azores, and the nativity actually is more than that, it's a set of models depicting the various stops Mary and Joseph made on their way to find lodging).

La Griteria? One thing I like to go watch is "La Posada" which happens every year in Monterey. Great setting since there are a lot of the old colonial Adobe's still left there (Monterey was the Capital of Alta California when this was Spanish / Mexican territory). ______________________________________ Paciencia es paz y sciencia
