Some Clips of Spain

I leave for Spain six weeks from today. Hopefully that’s just enough time to make me thoroughly sick of living at home–as for now, I’ve grown rather attached to family dinners. However, having the couch permanently attached to my ass might make it difficult to catch my flight. We shall see.

The plus side of leaving relatively soon is that I’ll have something to blog about. I can only squeeze anecdotes out of these glorious yet monotonous days for so long. (Anyone want to hear about my stroll around the block yesterday??)

In the meantime, here is a little video about Spain that I thought was rather adorable. The first section is where I’ll be, Basque Country. It features food, wine and greenery–three very compelling reasons to head over. Oh, and the goats! The video helped remind me that I’ll be returning to a lovely country. (And sometimes I need a little reminding. I went to my visa appointment the other day, and without looking at me, the Spanish attendant growled, “Let’s get this over with. I have a lot to do and I can’t be here all day.” All this, after I hand over $160 in cash just to gain entry into her country!)
