In Pain in Spain

I know in my last post I said I wouldn’t be writing about Spain much, but as I pull out my composition book in this dirt park behind my Air Bnb that is littered with trash and dog shit,

    Hey Leah,
    Sorry to hear the adjustment is rough going. I wish I could deliver you some ice, and an a/c but that would be a bit of a jaunt lol! I DO believe things will get better for you but I know transitions can just plain suck!
    Thanks for answering my questions in your previous post–I hope I wasn’t intrusive! Just know if ever you don’t want to answer a question, that’s fine too.
    So my next question comes from your response lol, were you a teacher back home or is this job just an interest and/or a way to get some traveling in and help others at the same time?
    Take care,

      Hi Lori,
      I was expecting the transition to be rough but luckily these last couple days have been a little better!
      Your questions were not invasive at all! Thank you for taking the time to read what I wrote and ask me them. I have the certification(s) to be a teacher in the US but I have not worked there as a full-time teacher yet. I have been dying to travel for years and decided now was the time to do it; there are a lot of opportunities in Spain to teach English abroad (probably because people cannot speak it here!) I am planning to travel around Europe when I am here and improve my Spanish-speaking skills.
      Please feel free to ask me any more questions you have. I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts!

    Hi Leah,
    Glad things seem to be going better for you! Thanks for your response–and yes, I’m definitely enjoying your posts!
    What is the food like there? I mean, are the items available in grocery stores about the same as here in the states or do you find yourself doing without a lot of the foods that you would normally eat at mealtimes back home? Are the prices less expensive or more?
    Hopefully the people will be friendly once you get to know some of the locals a bit better!
