So home was great. I seriously was really excited to go see everyone, drive a car, not smell ham, etc. I took super hot showers, used the garbage disposal, used the dryer, washed dishes with hot water, used a huge, dry towel instead of a camp towel/damp face towel combo, and had clothes that weren’t all stiff and stretched out. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!
All in all it was great, but too short. In a completely unexpected turn of events, Spain has made me appreciate home a little more, and not just the dry towels and nice appliances. Also, newsflash, I like skiing! Marshal has successfully trained me to not only not hate it, but actually like it a bit.
I also got a wonderful, wonderful Christmas present: an iPod touch. My parents got it for me to replace the unfortunately stolen one I lost en route to America, and it is AMAZING. I am going to devote a whole separate post to it later on because I love it so much. I also got a new digital camera which takes really nice photos considering that it cost about 1/6 of what my other one did. I’ll do a little write up on that later too because so far I really recommend it.
