My name is Melissa Stein and I am a Creative Writing major and Spanish minor at the University of Washington. I am currently studying abroad for a semester in Cádiz, Spain with a group of rambunctious young students like myself.
My blog “Un tiempo precioso (A precious time)” will be documenting my immersion into the Spanish culture. The fumbles. The odd e-mails from my mother as she sends her child half way across the world against her will. Enviable sunsets and unmatched, beautiful Spanish everything. My emotions as I get lost and unlost in the cobblestone alleyways. Slurping of oysters and swirling smells of bread. This is my journey. My adventure.
