Dinner today was amazing, it was a tapas restaurant, which I had never tried before, and we got to meet 6 other study abroad students from all different colleges in the United States that came through the CIS program to study in the nearby university. So the students we met today are all living with a host family and taking Spanish classes at the University. The food was great as well as the company.
The restaurant was right near the train track and a couple of trains went by during dinner so that was interesting. The ambiance in the restaurant was very interesting, the whole place smelled like incense and there were strings of beads for curtains between sections. There were lots of mannequins strategically placed in the restaurant/bar as well. Thank you Lisa and Heidi for coordinating this meetup!
