Today was our first day of class! We all had to wake up extra early to take the placement test for our Spanish so that was a little rough. The language class is 4 hours a day split between two professors. One seems to focus more on grammar and writing while the other seems to focus on making us speak out loud. Already I feel more comfortable speaking to the locals. Last night we walked through the Muslim neighborhood and it was absolutely gorgeous. All of the restaurants had the most ornate ceilings and walls. They also have the cheapest handmade leather bags and shoes here, so of course I got a new bag. This evening we will be going on a tour of the city with the school so hopefully we will find some interesting sights. I am loving this city and all these lovely people!!
