Today I will find out where I live!!

It has been a couple of days since I last posted a blog but it's because I have been so busy! I find myself just wandering around the city exploring my area. Everything and everyone is so different and new and sitting in my hostel is not an option. Today is a special day however, because I am going to meet with the USAC people and I will find out where and who I am living with! I am really glad that I came a couple of days early because I have truly enjoyed getting up in the morning and getting a cafe con leche and walking everywhere. Yesterday I probably walked 10 miles. Seriously. It was an all day walking experience. No wonder the Basque people are so skinny! Also, yesterday I was offered a great opportunity. I hit it off with this girl from Holland who works at the hostel I am staying at. We were talking away (in english thank god) and she asked me if I played any sports. She is playing on a girls soccer team that is starting next Wednesday and the girls need more players.!!!! So awesome! She said all the girls are really fun and are from all over the world. They don't really practice during the week but they play on Wed nights, and then they go enjoy a drink afterwords. haha I love this place. So great because I was just looking online for any intramural teams. It will be really nice to have a group of girls to hang out with...finally. I also met this guy name Miquel who is really awesome and he has shown me and Hillary around, since he has lived here for many years. He is a relator in San Sebastian so... maybe he can help me find an affordable appt this summer...maybe maybe. Anyways I wish that all of the people that I love could be here to enjoy this place with me. It's more than I can handle haha. oh and I will put up pictures of some awesome pintxos that I tried along with my vino tinto!! I'm going to take a siesta but I will blog again tonight when I am at the hotel.
