In Xela

Have arrived in Xela. Here is a picture of the inner court where the lessons take place. Tomorrow morning it will be full of people speaking Spanish at various levels. I met a young student today from northern Norway. She has just arrived and she will be learning her first words in Spanish tomorrow.

It is rainy and cold in the city today, but the bars of full of people. Spain and Italy are playing in the final Eurocup came today. There are televisions everywhere and the central park, even though rainy is full of life.

My house is a good 10-minute walk from here. I spent the better part of the afternoon trying to figure out routes from my house to Celas Maya. The streets here are a maze. Every street has an 'a' or 'b' associated with it, so you need to follow 4 Calle, not 4a Calle. My way of figuring is to turn left at the really good bakery and then right at the bright yello stucco wall.


Here is my address - mostly taken so I can remember how to find my way back!


  1. As long as you found the 'really good bakery' you should be fine Paul. :) Enjoy your first class tomorrow.

  2. Sounds like a great start to the trip - have fun!!
