Spain in the News

I've been reading the New York Times lately. I feel that's a good hobby for an aspiring author to pick up, don't you? Well, it just so happens that when I went to the NYT website (yeah, we're on a nickname basis), the first post under "Travel" was about Spain, the first post under "Art" was about Spain, and the first post under "Most Popular Right Now" was about Spanish!

I figure it's a sign. You should all read (or skim) these articles to learn about the waves that little old Spain is making in the world at large.

I really do love this country, but in a sense very different from how I love the US. The cultural, economical, and academic activity here is buzzing and exciting but relaxed and in no rush.

That being said, I would never live here, haha. More specifics about these sentiments after we get home.
