Have a good holiday! I just saw an interview with you in expatinterveiws after they contacted me to do one. It was very interesting to read what you think about Spain.

I liked the interview nomadita links. Hope your new business does well, and I would like many spanish firms would hire you to teach american client service, we really need it here: you know, just the basic, to smile, to greet you good morning, to thank you for your purchase and to say bye-bye.

Hi, I was browsing the Internet and stumbled upon your blog, and am I glad I did! In September I will be moving to Salamanca for a semester abroad, and I am starting to get nervous about the little things that make up daily life: joining a gym, finding convenience/grocery stores, getting an outlet adapter, adjusting to the food and customs, etc. How are you finding it? I have been reading through some of your entries, and it sounds like you have made a smooth transition from American to Spanish culture. Well done! I think I'm going to start stalking your blog, lol. Hope to hear more about your exciting adventures!

Michelle,Don´t worry at all! Life here is so quiet! And it´s easy to get all that things you´ll need.Salamanca is a small city, you get everywhere walking and there are a lot of americans, english and other "guirys" so you feel at home.Salmantinos we are friendly people, it´s true.

Hola Nomadita, gracias por tu mensaje! Ya me siento mejor, y estoy muy emocionada para este semestre. Y tu ingles es perfecto!

Hi Michelle!You've caught me wandering Europe without much internet access, but I'm glad Nomadita answered you--She's a Salmantina so, see, you'll find warm, wonderful people here. Don't worry about finding anything (other than good peanut butter :)) in Salamanca; you can pick up adaptors here or at a travel store before you come (the one with 2 round prongs, you knew that, right?) and while you won't find a lot of gyms, there are more all the time and you'll find one close enough to where you live, I suspect. If you are wondering about anything else just send me an email (wanderingwoman42 at hotmail): I'd be happy to tell you anything I can.Salamanca is a fabulous place for a semester abroad; you'll have a great few months, I bet..
