HAPPY EASTER!!! It is so weird not to be home for today seeing as it has always been a very special day to my family. I didn't get woken up to my dad singing "HE IS RISEN HE IS RISEN COME ON AND CELEBRATE!!" which was sad, I don't see pretty spring color dresses and boys in their nice slacks (its freezing here), I dont get to attend mass with my family and celebrate Jesus being ALIVE! and of course wont have brunch at the club...its hard to be away for this holiday but thank goodness I live with a Catholic family here who will go with me to mass and celebrate! O and did I mention that I got to see THE POPE!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING!!!! I unfortunately did not get to stay in Rome for Easter Mass which would have been amazing but I am very happy to be back in Alcala and not living out of a suitcase. Madrid feels more and more like home everytime I come back from traveling. I will be updating my blog all day today but its going to take me a while seeing how I was gone for 10days in ITALY!!!! Have a Happy Easter and know that I am thinking of you!
