3.57 p.m (Spain), November 9, 2012 , Seville
Day 4, Take 1
The lazy me has found an easier way to narrate my the initial experience of being in the beautiful town of Spain –Seville. Its through an e-mail that I wrote to a close friend- with considerable amount of editing in order to maintain confidentiality!
You may find many such e-mails that has been sent/ unsent in the blog!
How are you?! Thought i should pass on my love to you all the way from Spain.
Even though you never mailed to enquire, I presume you would like to know how am I doing here! 🙂
(a) Beautiful Town: Not seen much of it though. Planning to make a trip to the downtown on the weekend;
(b) Huge Office: The Office overlooks the town on one side and lots of greenery on the other side;
(c) Lovely Lunch: I am loving the food!
(d) Decent Work (Oh btw unlike what i presumed – there is a lot of work!)
(e) Beautiful accommodation : A beautiful 3 bhk with an excellent view of the town.
(f) Work timings: Unlike what I thought the work timings are long. People come in by 8.30 a.m and leave only by 8.00 p.m. So evening site seeing is out of question!
(g) Good looking men : Well there are a number of good looking men. However 99.9 % of them do not know English. So they remain eye candy. Nothing more :(.
(a) Language: Not knowing the language is killing everything – can’t understand what people are speaking, directions, food! Life becomes difficult at times.
(b) Climate – It is not very cold, but it is raining all the time :(. My weekend trips might go for a toss.
(c) My lack of sense of direction – This is not Spain specific as most of you may know. Yesterday I went to buy groceries and ended up walking around the same building twice. Realized it when i saw the grocery store from where I had set out for home after about ten minutes of walking 🙂
