Leaving On A High Note

Not wanting to get all soft and gooey, sentimental (which when you are a woollen finger puppet, is not difficult – an accidental slip up at the breakfast table and you are in the “mermalada”); I am going to have many fond memories of Spain – memories that will last a lifetime.

It was fitting that Barcelona just battered Manchester United in the Champions League, 2-0 and all of Spain is celebrating. The last round of drinks was “on the house”. It is 11pm and out in the streets, car horns are honking, fireworks are exploding randomly throughout the city, and everybody is out celebrating as only the Spanish know how.

Tomorrow is our last day at school and we have invited everyone we know; students, friends, and teachers, over to our place for one final celebration and then on Friday we depart for Italy, to Parma, to see if the famed ham really is better than Spain’s renowned Serrano and Iberico varieties. I suspect not.

Viva la Espana!
