I think its the 4th day.Ã‚Â I am doing so much they are starting to blend together.Ã‚Â I am with my Spanish family now and things are going great.Ã‚Â Yesterday we were going to go bowling but the bowling ally was very full about 200 people.Ã‚Â Instead we took photos of the city at night which was cool.Ã‚Â Today Julia, her boyfriend, another friend and I went around the city all day.Ã‚Â We went to the cathedral which was very intricate and amazing.Ã‚Â We ate lots of good food especially the bomba a potato that is mashed then breaded and fried with a sause on it. I also had a pocket sandwich similar to a gyro.Ã‚Â It was great.Ã‚Â I saw other people from my group around town and said hi.Ã‚Â Tomorrow I am going to school and I am excited.Ã‚Â
Segovia is a great city.Ã‚Â El Aquaducto is very cool.Ã‚Â It is amazing that it is still standing after all of these years.Ã‚Â I had a great lunch of Tortilla Espanola con papas.Ã‚Â It has been raining all day and this evening after we went to the flaminco show it rained very hard.Ã‚Â We took the metro so we would not get as wet.Ã‚Â The Flaminco show was amazing.Ã‚Â The dancers had to have so much endourence and I wish i could of understood the words.Ã‚Â Everyone is mad at the cambios (change).Ã‚Â They do not seem to like to take travlers checks.Ã‚Â Then when we do find one that will they see the group and decide to close.Ã‚Â Being the weekend and Monday being a holiday it is a furstrating process.Ã‚Â My family has loaned me 100E till I can get some money changed.Ã‚Â The food is great.Ã‚Â Churros con Chocolate is fantastic. IÃ‚Â took another 176 photos yesterday and I may go take a few more tonigh.Ã‚Â

Things have been busy and I have not kept this blog updated as I had hoped.Ã‚Â I have heard and I have been e-mailing and instant messaging the family I will be staying with in Spain.Ã‚Â I am very excited about the trip.
Below is an attempt at macro photography.Ã‚Â The object is an American Flag.
I took this shot last week in the moring.Ã‚Â The sunrise was amazing and captured it quickly around my house.Ã‚Â This is what I came up with.Ã‚Â I will edit this post and include the other image as well.
This weekend I purchased a Photochute. It’s a great little device that once your camera or other USB device is plugged in it will suck all your files/pictures onto the device. It’s great for travel. I highly recomend it.
