Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

I had my last Spanish class today But the good thing is that I can take a follow up course too. There's a big gap though, because the first class is on 8th of Feb, hopefully I won't forget the stuff I've studied so far especially the numbers

Anyway, as Christmas are coming, we had this theme today. She told us about the 22nd of Dec, el dia de la loteria. That's pretty crazy And then we tried to copy it (4 456, mil euros), but didn't even get close to those kids calling those numbers for hours

Then we ate 12 uvas para 12 meses while watching the clock in Madrid (I think it's name is el Sol?) showing the midnight on YouTube (it was a clip of a tv program that aired during the New Year's Eve of 2009/2010).

And finally we ate olives (I must say I really didn't like them, but there are some big green olives that are acutally good!) and played a game

Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

Since I've been talking here before about my struggles in Spanish. I now jumped in to the unknown head first, and am in Spain for 2 weeks to learn more of the language. It's scary because I've never been to a country before where people don't speak a language I know better than Hola, como estas?

I never thought siestas were true, but it's actually working

OMG why didnīt you tell me this earlier,Katrin? I believe we could have had some practice

Seriously,itīs great youīre there. Too much heat though,I donīt think the Baltic people as you are used to it unfortunately .

Well,how are you doing? In which part of Spain are you in? Where are you staying? With whom youīre travelling? How itīs the food, the people? Too much questions haha but I want to know everything

And of course feel free to ask me whatever you want about my country, language-wise or not. Iīd be very glad if I could help

Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

Vale, si esta muy muy calor, pero... I can stand it when I'm not outside Actually since I'm staying at an apartment (I think it's usually rented to the students of university, but this program I'm taking part of has probably some contraction with the owner) without air conditioner, it's even better outside, because there's wind. Though en mediodia es imposible.

I'm in Alicante. I came alone, so I don't really know anyone here. And since the program is for extranjeros, I don't get to meet lots of local people (apart from the teachers and casual vendedoras), unless I jump on one of them (which won't happen).

Since it's so hot I barely eat, just drinking lots of water. However yesterday I had a first proper meal (since Monday, otherwise it's a bite of sandwich). I had a paella (for the first time). It was good Any other recommendations? Is there like something special to Spain (even candies, or chocolate or whatever)? Because this globalization is just crazy! McDonalds on every corner, same food (hamburgers, pizzas, Milka, Nesquick, Haribo), Terranova, Zara, not to mention Adidas, Nike, and Puma.

One of the first new words I learned was REBAJAS! REBAJAS! REBAJAS! I'm not complaining

I also wanted to spend a day in Madrid, but now it's kind of hard, as my classes are from 3-8 in the evening, and I have a plane on Saturday (in ideal world I would have left to Madrid on Friday, and spent Saturday doing touristic stuff).

Wow Katrin Iīm impressed,I admit . I mean, to come alone here even though youīre in a program about learning languages is impressive .

Theyīre pretty stingy Iīd say .I mean,how can they expect people to survive without an air conditioner when siesta comes around is beyond me...

What are the goals of this program? How they try to fulfill these goals? Since you said youīve some teachers,I doubt they bring you all to the beach

Iīd suggest you to try a fresh drink called Horchata to fight the heat. Itīs typical from Valencia though has a great acceptation in every place of Spain . They use a plant called chufa to do the Horchata,I donīt think youīve ever heard about it,but seriously,itīs good .

About the food,typical Spanish food, paella is the biggest meal in the Costa Brava. Iīm not too fond of it though but Iīm glad you tried that (and liked it) because thatīs what everyone does. Also in Alicante there are a lots of shellfish of every kind which are also typical Spanish so try it . If you want some fruit, you cannot avoid to try the oranges of Valencia, the very best of the world . If you donīt like our food you can always rely on McDonals and such so I donīt think the eating part could be a problem. That said, I really hope you try those things I said if you want to know us better . Would be even better if you like it, and since you liked Paella youīre on the right track, dare I say

If you learned the Rebajas word,Iīm sure you love to shopping then . My advice to you is that you should try to buy everything you want such as clothes, shoes or even souvenirs because as you already know, rebajas means prices are lesser than before so everyone goes for it. You have to be fast though

Before I forget, are you taking some photos of the sea and such? If so, could be nice if you could share : D.

What Saturday youīre leaving? I hope itīs not tomorrow...if so, you wouldnīt have time to try all my advices . Please keep me updated and needless to say,Iīm more than willing to help you if you need every kind of help .

BTW I liked your post,seems like youīre having fun which is great so you just have to keep the fun coming! : cheer :

Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

Okay, I'll flood the thread a bit with some pictures.

One of the symbols in Alicante, castle of Santa Barbara


The other day we went to el palmeral (I guess it translates to palm tree something?)


Some of those palms (at least those looked like palm trees) had stuff like this on them


Others had stuff like this. I was literally : for a while, and my first thought was it's something artificial to make it prettier, but it's actually real stuff on the tree


Yesterday we visited Villajoyosa (also Valor's chocolate factory, and got to try different kind of chocolates the only thing was though that since there were some teens too, they ATE the best one rather quickly, it was rather rude imo because there were other people besides them also). Colorful houses from there


and also went to Altea where they have those white houses


*******************************************
I don't really like oranges. But I think I'll buy some to go before I leave. Do they sell oranges from other places here also? I guess the best place to buy those would be Frutas y Verduras?

I saw Horchata at one place today. They asked 3.50€ for this, so I thought not today.. But I did try something called gozpacho andaluz. Since it looked red, I assumed it's something sweet and includes watermelon. And instead... such a surprise It's something with tomato I think, and Anyway, I didn't really enjoy it. Maybe if to add some pepper and salt it'd be better?

And actually I don't really like shopping, because I can never decide. So it's either I take it all (usually not possible), or take nothing and leave the store mad at myself, because I can't make up my mind. And in the end when I've spent like the whole day in stores, and ended up with nothing, I just go and buy something that I barely end up wearing
But it's hard not to notice when they have rebajas written on every window (Another word I saw a lot, and I mean a lot was oro, and I thought it must be something necessary for everyday life. So I looked it up, and learned that gold is really big here)
Unfortunately those stores don't sell souvenirs and there's no rebaja on souvenirs (those pieces of "art" must be one of the most overpriced things there are (not just in Spain, but everywhere), like 3€ for some rubber bracelet?).

Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

Katrin,you have to forgive me. Iīve been so busy lately because I want to change my university and so these last few days I have had to do a LOT of papers and then find a place to stay during the academic year. But I havenīt forgotten you and your adventures there ; ).

Yes, palmeral means palm tree. And palm = palmera. Easy,isnīt it? : p

Iīm also surprised at those palms. Never seen anything like this before; atleast in my region there arenīt things like this : lol :

Iīve never been to neither Villajoyosa nor Altea, but I did visit Elche, havenīt you gone there? :speechless:

Itīs great you got to eat some chocolate despite those teen efforts to ruin everything .I love me some chocolate too : lick : ; )

About the oranges,Iīm sure they sell them in every shop related to food .And if you want to buy them in a supermarket, then indeed you have to go to the Frutas y Verduras section but make sure those oranges are from Valencia and not everywhere else, there must be some label saying "Naranja de Valencia" : p

About the horchata, you can also buy a bottle in every supermarket and itīll be way cheaper than in the bars altough Iīm not sure if you saw it there...About the gazpacho, never tried nor Iīm intend to in the future : lol :. I believe it leaves you very thirsty and the gazpacho has a weird look to say the least .So I canīt really answer you if it could be better with some salt and pepper but I think its taste would be even worse : rolls :, so yeah I wouldnīt recommend it. But the best thing you can do if you didnīt like it at first itīs not to try it again : lol :

You remind me of my mother with the shopping stuff : lol :. Sheīs always so happy when the rebajas come around but then she goes to the shops and comes back sad or angry because she didnīt find what she wanted and instead, like you, buys something she never uses. Iīll never understand how the brain of you girls works : spit :

About the oro thing, Iīm sure you refer to those big posters in yellow saying "Vendo oro" or "Compro oro". They are everywhere and TBH I donīt get what their business is about : shrug :. I mostly think, Oh look, again those stupid posters and then walk away shaking my head : lol :

And about the souvenirs thing, I tend to buy some almost everytime despite knowing, as you said, that they are pretty overpriced but well,after all it seems to me that they help you have a more vivid remembrance of your holidays : p. But if you donīt feel like buying some, you can always have your photos : shrug:

BTW nice photos :yeah :.Keep them coming ; ) and share more experiences please : ) and, needless to say, ask for help if you need any ; ). I promise you Iīll reply you much faster next time ; )

EDIT: Fuck I had to delete a lot of smiles because we are can only have 20 and I had like 40

Re: Nina fans Off-Topic Thread

Unfortunately my adventures in Spain are over for this time

Needless to say I loved it there! Well, I actually haven't been to the place yet where it's like I want homeeee.

Two weeks passed so very quickly. Especially the second week. Probably it was also because I had the classes in the afternoon at 15-20. I normally would like to sleep late, so getting up at 12 it's like only 3h till class, can't really do anything.

It was a funny coincidence how at the same day two different shop assistants at two different places knew that I'm from somewhere else. One of them asked me a second after I had stepped to the store, 'Do you speak English?'. I thought I must look terribly red And another one said something in Russian to me, I don't know if I talk with Russian accent maybe Anyway, he made sure I knew what he told me, and when I said I'm not from Russia, he started throwing me all the countries he knew in Eastern Europe Ukraine, Romania, Slovakia and what else
But actually people at least know know there's Estonia. One of the guys working at the school office told me that Estonia is famous because of Eurovision. And I thought no one really cares for ESC. Though Euphoria (this year's winner) was played a lot on radio.

I also went snorkeling to an island Tabarca near Alicante. It turned out to be a totally different experience than I had expected. I got sea sick while snorkeling The waves were kind of big, so when I had my head under water watching the fish, the waves made me feel sick. I have felt a bit sea sick in a boat before, but this time it was just terrible. Finally I managed to swim to the shore, and sat there for quite a while like I had escaped a drowning ship or something But when I got back to the boat it got worse, so the instructor asked me if I had a big fiesta last night or something

I spent my last day in Madrid, touring on a hop on, hop off bus. I had no expectations, however I never expected it to be so huge. I was kind of overwhelmed with all the old and huge buildings, I can't really explain it. Also one day (and in my case not even a day, but like 5 hours) is clearly not enough. I had actually planned to go to Madrid at Friday night, so I'd have the evening + Saturday, but the evening classes messed up my plans

Also, the bus I took from Alicante to Madrid, is a totally new level. I'd even say the planes flying in continental Europe (at least the ones I've flown with) have nothing on Alsa's Supra buses Unfortunately my trip was at night, so there was not much difference which bus it would have been.

Well, as I understand gazpacho can either be a drink or a soup I had a drink:


I didn't see the horchata drink at the store, but there was a box horchata sticks like in the shape of an ice cream, so I bought those. It has a specific taste to it.. First one I tried I couldn't finish it. But when I felt really thirsty, I thought about what you said it helping to fight the heat. So the next ones were better.

One of the last days in Alicante, I met the protesters. I was surprised it's on such a big scale. Here a protest = 2 people with a poster


2 more pictures from Alicante. 1st is Explanada at the night (I really love the city lights at night!), also one of the symbols of Alicante besides castillo de Santa Barbara.


A restaurant in the ship


At Puerta del Sol (it's a funny coincidence how it seems like someone's finger is pushing one of Sponge Bob's buttons).


Actually Puerta del Sol was one of the places I knew beforehand. But then I didn't see the bear and Madroņo, and also missed the kilometer 0 plate. I'm so disappointed in myself for this, really.

Queen Sofia's higher music school (I just liked the idea of the notes at the house!)


Almuenda's cathedral.. in front of it the Royal palace


EDIT: I never asked, but what area do you live at Karlos? Why do you want to change the university? I guess it would be further from home?
