I ended up running with three firefighters this week in Toledo.
I was on an evening run when I passed by a few runners for the second time that night. As I was about to pass by, they invited me to join them.
We had time to learn about each other while on their normal route, which was in close proximity to the fire station since they were on-call. We even ran up a tower that I would not have had the chance to enter without them!
They thought that I had only started learning Spanish when I arrived this semester, so they told me that I spoke Spanish very well. I had to tell them that I started learning the language almost a decade ago (slightly not as impressive).
I’m still relatively new to the city/country; however, I appreciate all of the random encounters that I have shared with welcoming individuals. I am grateful for all of the friendly strangers that I have met thus far not only in Spain, but also in Portugal and Morocco!
It’s really difficult to believe that our semester is almost over; however, there is still plenty of time to meet myriad new people before returning to the US.
Looking forward to experiencing whatever else is in store!
Paz, Amor y Felicidad,
