I am back from Spain

...obviously. I promise I will update properly. It is just that week away really diverted my attention from work and I am now washed under. Spain was a fiesta. Work experience was lovely. More updates to come - the holiday page, Korean page, and Spain story.

In Patagonia

For part of my Spanish A-Level Unit 3 exam I have to write a case study on a geographical area, a piece of literature or a historical study - the 4th option I forgot as obviously I would go for the Geography option! It has to be a Spanish speaking region and I chose Patagonia. So I am spending a lot of time finding out about the region that is shared between the 'Cono Sur' Southern Cone countries, Argentina and Chile. It really is a drastic, beautiful area and is 'Man's struggles to tame wilderness'!
As a learning aid, I purchased this book by Bruce Chatwin - accounts from his Patagonian adventure. I have so far only read the introduction by Nicholas Shakespeare but it already is so interesting!

Oh yes, 10 days countdown till Valladolid! I found out yesterday I will be working in my selected area of Tourism and it will be great!

What is in the box?

My precious box arrived from South Korea, sent by my lovely friend. Since I don't write much updates on my sub pages, I will put my post on my Korean page. Check it out to see what I received and what I also sent! Soon!
