Hey everyone ! Here are Evgeniya Farakh from
Casa Crisol and Casa del Hobbit
Today is a great day! Why? Because our new story is coming right now, please make your favorite drink and enjoy reading. Let’s start!
This project gave us an unforgettable opportunity to live in the real Spanish family to feel how life is going here from the inside. We lived in different families, so we have our own Spanish parents, brothers, and sisters.
Zhenia: I lived with my Spanish family approximately 5 weeks, except on-arrival training days. You should see the house I was living in, it’s amazing! The house – Casa Crisol – is located a little bit outside Arenas, but
So my family lives on the 2nd floor, here always warm and when they are preparing food, it smells
They are really active, the stereotype that Spanish people are lazy and want to do nothing is totally broken. There were days even without siesta sofa-time! All the time sports, music band repetitions, English classes(yea, I’m really proud of my Spanish mummy), etc. On the weekends going somewhere (and I traveled with them, you will read about that in the next posts).
20 days later..
I can’t believe I already spent all this time in Arenas de San Pedro! I need to take place in this wonderful work rhythm. Life here is incredible. I understand now that home is just a place you feel comfortable with people… I will tell you more about how I got here!
See you soon !!
With Love, Jo
She is a teacher in the school, so she finishes the main part of her work at 2 pm (don’t forget, that you need to prepare lessons, to check students papers) and we always had lunch together at 3 pm, the time when you can talk and just have fun. Sometimes it was hard because of the language gap, my Spanish is zero level, and their English is not so perfect, so we needed to repeat some sentences many times in different words to clarify the main idea. But it is always fun. My Spanish brother is so enthusiastic, creative, easy-going and, of course, the sport is his passion. It’s the reason why one of his favorite school subjects is Physical Education. He plays drums, guitar, practicing kayaking. It was the best evenings when he was playing drums and his mother was playing the saxophone. Both of them take a part in the local music band.
Every Tuesday we have a common dinner with Salome’s family because they are really good friends and its kind of a tradition. I was thinking to create something similar in my home country. I wrote that we have dinner, not had, because we still invited to Tuesday dinner, even after starting living on our own.
