Some Things You Might Want to Know… (Posted 5-14-2011)

about our life in Spain.

*We don’t have a dryer. Spaniards line-dry their laundry.

*We don’t have central heat/air, BUT we are blessed with small units in each room that we can use for heat or a/c.

*Our windows don’t have screens, but our windows will be open all the time this summer.

*We haven’t had a car to drive since last October.  We take the metro and walk everywhere. (We’re working on getting our drivers licenses here…ours don’t transfer.)

*We miss cheddar cheese, blueberries, frozen fruit, and going out to eat, especially Tex-Mex and breakfast!

*We eat fresh bread with most meals.

*If we miss a food item and I can make it from scratch, I do it.  Some of our favorites include Reeses’ peanut butter bars, Chicago-style pizza, orange chicken and refried beans.  Coming soon: peanut butter.

*There are no checks in Spain so we pay our rent and all bills by bank transfer.
