Buckling down

Needless to say, I have been really busy this past week. I had my first test last week in my Uruguayan Literature class, which actually wasn’t too difficult! Hopefully we will get our tests back tomorrow…yikes! Wish me luck.


My view lately – the library

Additionally, last week I also had my Adventure Tourism class again, and the goal of the day was mountain biking. I really could not tell you the last time I successfully rode a bike before that day, so I was actually pretty nervous, but you know what they say…once you learn how to ride a bike, you will never forget, and thankfully that saying is correct! Seeing as how there are no mountains in Uruguay, we went to a local park that has a hill – which is quite a rarity. We learned the proper technique to peddling up a slope and riding down as well, which was actually pretty difficult! I certainly had sore legs the following day.


After that, the week continued on as normal. Class, homework, community service, and more studying. Of course, it hasn’t all been serious business – I am still managing to have some fun!

I went out and ate Mexican food with some friends on Friday night, and on Saturday one of my compañeras had a birthday party. We ate burgers, which I must say were extremely delicious, and she even had a lady come to give us salsa dancing lessons for one hour. Needless to say, I have two left feet and absolutely no rhythm. Although it was a really fun experience, I definitely won’t be picking up salsa dancing any time soon.


This week, I have to turn in a research paper, present in a group project about Juan Bautista Alberdi, and apply for housing back at Western. I can’t believe I already have to think about and start planning my return. Time sure does fly.
