donde esta la biblioteca?

Did you know that Spanish is listed under “languages” on my resume? Bet you didn’t. But after a weekend in Spain with a friend who kept getting confused and answering questions in German (instead of even attempting Spanish or just speaking English, which everyone speaks anyway) I feel confident enough to add “Spanish – Tourist Proficiency” to my list of skills.

After spending Easter in Spain I can also add the following to my list of skills:

  • Choosing a vacation destination based on “what is the cheapest flight out of Germany on these dates?”
  • Nodding and smiling when someone answers my broken-Spanish question with a rapid-fire Spanish answer.
  • Making very detailed lists of recommended restaurants and things to do on a trip, and then not consult that list a single time.
  • Managing to visit at least one of the recommended restaurants for dinner (by accident!), though spend the night drinking copious amounts of Spanish wine and not eating many of the actual Tapas.
  • Getting sunburnt from spending a few hours rotating between the beach, a cafe in the sun, and back to the beach in Palamos.
  • Choosing a restaurant based not on recommendations or menu, but on its name (Fish!)

I may not have gotten an Easter basket or eaten a single chocolate egg, but I still consider Easter 2013 a wild success.
