my keychain is from spain

for spring break of my senior year,
i traveled to spain with the spanish club.
it was april 1988.
i was 17.
{photos above & below were taken at the alhambra}

{photo below looks like a postcard, 
but i really did take it at el acueducto de segovia}

flamenco dancers

the photos below are some of my all-time favorites

i took loads of pictures.
i soaked up the culture.
i ate queso manchego.
i dreamt in spanish.
i discovered the spanish phrase 
i have used more than any other,
"¿cómo se dice _______ en español?"
{"how do you say _______ in spanish?"}

and i bought the keychain of my life.
it is the one i carry with me every. single. day.
the only one i have ever used.

thank you, mom & dad,
for the once-in-a-lifetime
senior trip to spain.

thank you, also, for the keychain.
