December 3rd-6th, 2012
This work week was short because of another puente. Thursday and Saturday were national holidays so we only worked til Wednesday. Thursday was the day of the constitution and Saturday was a religious holiday. Our plans to travel were ambitious, Portugal or France, but we soon realized planning is essential. We decided to save it for later when our friends arrive. I spent two afternoons helping my friend Ines translate her cousin’s neurobiology thesis from Spanish to English — one of the afternoons included some good Chinese food.
Amissa and I took a long walk Thursday. We visited our kitten friends up our street, walked on the outskirts of town, ate at Bar Delicias, and finally visited the Jumilla sign. Later, we went to Panda with Alex to shop for candles. We ended in that damn store for nearly two hours. Alex invited us to some of his burnt soup. I made some mutant chili cheese fries dish. Before bed, we signed Amissa up for online classes.
