Friday night saw me bidding a sad farewell to the last group of my lovely students who have been a part of my life since last September. I have to admit I shed a little tear (and so did some of them). My walk home, after handing in the keys to my boss, was filled … Continue reading GOODBYE ECIJA
The school year is drawing to a close, at least here in Europe, which means so too is my time here in Spain.
