|Reid back home|
I have safely made it back to the U.S. and am now writing to you from my house in Seattle, Washington. I hope that everything is going well, and that you are able to stay focused for these last two weeks before summer. My experience living in Lugo and teaching in Guntin was an incredible one that I will never forget. I truly enjoyed spending time together in each one of our classes, and it is my dream that I will be able to return to Spain one day. The book with comments you all wrote for me really made me smile--I waited to read it until I was on the plane, and I'm glad I did. It made the 19 hours go by much faster!
Since I've been home, I have been spending a lot of time with my brother Cole and cousin Troy. Cole has cooked me dinner every single night that I've been home. It's like I have a private chef :) I bought Cole a cookbook and a small jar of anchovies from Cantabria (he loves them), and Troy a T-shirt from Lugo. You made some very good gift suggestions--thank you! My mom and dad are also coming from Phoenix, Arizona this week to visit my brother, cousin and I. I haven't seen them for 6 months so I'm looking forward to it.
My plan for the summer is to spend a lot of time with family, go hiking and biking, and go fishing. I hope that you all learned something while I was with you, and I hope that you enjoyed our classes as much as I did. I will certainly miss it.
Good luck with the last days of school and have a great summer!
P.s. I forgot to mention on my last day, if any 4th year students continuing on with their studies ever need advice or just want someone to read through a work of theirs (an essay, a resume, etc.) I am more than happy to do so. Please let them know that they can reach me through this email or feel free to send me a message through LinkedIn. Enjoy the summer, and good luck next year!
