we only have one day of school left in sevilla, which is exciting and sad at the same time. friday we get a free day, which will probably be a shopping day for most people, and then saturday morning we take the train back to madrid.

our activity today, which is optional, is a soccer game. it costs 15€ so i am not sure if i really want to go. but i probably will because all of my friends are going and it´s supposed to be a good cultural experience. but apparently they don´t sell food or drinks at the game, which is SO different from the u.s.! you can bring in snacks and non alcoholic drinks to the game here, but it stinks because my favorite part of sporting events is the food!

yesterday our activity was visiting the plaza de españa and el parque de maría luisa. they were both huge and beautiful. the park was the only place i have really seen any grass in sevilla. it also had lots of ponds and fountains and trees.

i really miss turkey sandwiches, at home i get them from subway all the time. there is no turkey here. lots of ham. everywhere. like whole giant ham legs hanging in bars. there are a few american food places here, such as mcdonalds, burger king, and kfc. i have not eaten there because i know about ten people on my trip who have gotten sick from eating at those places. there is not too much variety in the restaurants here, which is one thing i appreciate about the u.s. there are a million tapas bars here, and they all serve pretty much the same thing.

Hey Jen,
I just got your post card and I must say I am very disappointed...it is the first post card you have sent me that does not have a man with a mullet on the front! However you do mention the many Spanish mullets and pictures of them which is hot and gets me excited for when you come back and I can see them. And you also addressed it to the pappinator which I enjoy. Can't wait to see you
