RAIN, rain, go away. Thanks to a few days of gloominess and drizzle in Sevilla I’ve got my irregular indefinido verbs absolutely down.

We had a little test in the class yesterday and since it’s been a good long while since I’ve been examined in anything I may have gone a little overboard on the revision front, and became nigh on obsessive over tracking down the irregular verbs.

But been promoted to a new class after the weekend, so it’s good to know the hours of verb-learning were worth it!

I’m missing my pretty lazy afternoons reading in the park by the river this week though, so it’ll be nice when the sun decides to show its face again. Not the best weather for solar eclipse spotting.

Have been able to track down where all the cool kids go to shop for their vintage goods in Sevilla though, thanks to a tip off from a friend. Calle Feria and the surrounding area – sort of behind the Alameda – is a beautiful place, and has recently taken the top spot for ‘my favourite place in Sevilla’.

Word of the day: te respaldo, basically means I’ve got your back.
