October brings with it two glorious things – the prospect of cooler days and my new found status as a local chica!
I have been living and working in Marbella, Spain now since July, suffering through up to 38 degrees of heat, very early mornings and the endless questions, constant energy and snotty noses of primary age children! I may even go as far as to say that I am sick of the sound of my own name – ‘Señorita Francescaaaa’. However, one thing is certain, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Spain has welcomed me again and it’s almost like I never left. The waiters are still in my favourite restaurants, and my local chiringuito have welcomed me back as their princesa, and I’m making new friends everywhere I go!
