Well, this is me a student from sunny Barcelona that thought that coming to Scotland was a good idea, and I was loving it, until now…
Aye so this Christmas was snow a bit and I loved it, so when this week started snowing I thought was such a beautiful gift, WRONG, my 10 minutes’ walk to the subway ended up with walking like a Bambi learning how to walk, covered on snow looking like the Yeti, and then when it melted I was soaking.
But that wasn’t the end of this Odyssey, from the subway to the train station I was looking at the floor to avoid snow getting in my eyes, and I almost got run by over a car twice… which would have been better than what was about to come.
Because once I got the train station I was fully wet, and my way to the college ended up with me arriving shaking like a chicken and my feet were so wet it felt like I was ice skating on my own shoes, that made me take my shoes and socks of my feet and put them in the non-existing heating, cause they stood there for a good 3 hours and no results….

So after crossing what felt like the North Pole, walking around with my bare feet and almost dying twice I came to class and there were only two people in.
Scotland I thought we were friends, I’ve been making huge sacrifices for you like watching Still Game, learning Scottish, drinking like a Scot, eating like a Scot and trying to speak like one, even though my Latina accent is too sexy for your body.
But nae bother pal, when you come over my country this summer I’ll make sure the sun hits you so hard that your skin will be as red as your head, and you’ll be walking around like a zombie lobster.
Thanks Scotland, sincerely yours.
