I should probably note that my blog will be slightly different from the typical 4-week sumer session blogs. Since I need both sessions to help me complete my Spanish minor, I'll be here for 8 weeks, not just 4. Therefore, my blog will continue throughout the two months that I'll be studying in Spain.
And now I can finally tell you something about Spain.
On my first saturday here, the study abroad program director organized a little unofficial trip to Toledo with the 4 students studying with Stony Brook, and some of our friends that we had met during our first week. We went by train, as we do when we travel to most places on our own, and it took us about 30 minutes. I should note that the train is very reasonable here in Spain.
