I have already made some travel plans. This coming weekend I will be eating a Spanish favorite of "tapas" at the Cava Baja - one of the most emblematic areas of Madrid apparently. Then on Saturday I will be taking a day trip to Segovia and then Sunday a day trip to Toledo. I am very excited and I am glad I will be busy so I don't have to miss home that much!
Tonight was the second meal Gloria cooked for me and it was wonderful as was breakfast. Tonight we had a soup similar to chicken noodle soup with garbanzo beans instead of the chicken. And then she made me a salad and then we had something similar to "poppers" - Gloria told me the name but I completely forgot the name. Instead of having a "dulce" (sweet) for dessert I choose to have fruta. The fruit that we had is called Cherimoya - it is a tropical fruit and it is grown mostly in the summer and there is a small place in southern Spain where it is grown (picture below). I got all that information and more from Gloria in Spanish. Even just today I improved on my Spanish - mostly because I wasn't as nervous.
Siempre paz y amor. God Bless.
