This space has been quiet as of late. Summer has taken me on a wild ride so far, all leading up to a new adventure in the place where I left my heart a little over a year ago.
I started work on my Masters in Spanish linguistics a short while ago, and will be studying exhaustively for the next five weeks. Without the time to put my heart and soul into posts, I leave you with a few shots of my summer so far.
In June I….
Wandered the streets and said ‘so long’ to my favorite corners of New York
Drank lots of txakolí at Txikifest, a Basque food & wine festival
…and wrote about it for the lovely Christine in Spain
Became a child of the mud with Kings of Leon, Alt-J, St. Lucia, Young the Giant, Foals, Kanye West and many more at Governor’s Ball Music Festival
Fell [back] in love with my hometown in Pittsburgh, PA
And headed north, to a new [to me] part of this fair country, where the green mountains roll and the sky washes pink every night.
To study in the land where Robert Frost wrote, where Lorca summered, and where Phish, and Phish Food, were born.
It’s nice to meet ya, Vermont…
Posts to follow, as soon as I get my nose out of the books.
See you in Madrid, friends…
