Chao 2008

These are the pics from what I have been doing in Galicia. First one is in Lugo, in the Romanian wall which is over 2,000 years old. That was pretty cool. The next is a cool church I found interesting in the Pontevedra. And then this last one is Carla and I at La Playa Catedrales which had high tide, so we actually didn't get to see the arcs, but it was beautiful. I like Galicia!

These are fun. :) 2008 Survey

Was 2008 a good year?
It was, hands down, my favorite year.

When did things change for you if they did?
Ughh, every month something changed for me. Two most drastic changes for me though: March I made the soccer team, so that boosted my self esteem. Then in September I went to my first foreign country.

Do you think 2009 will be better then 2008?

I confess that in the beginning of 2008 I...

Spain: Carla, Jesús.

¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
