good day mate!

¡Hola!
being in spain has been one of the most amazing experiences ever! living with a bunch of spanish people has been tough but muy muy fun! im glad that ellie and i got to live in the same house because when the rest of the familia(the spanish family) started speaking spanish, i had someone to go talk to! however i have learned quite a few new words in spanish. actually i think ive learned more spanish here than i did in spanish class this year! jk!
swimming in an international meet was amazing! getting the opportunity to swim with some of the fastest swimmers in the world was definitly an unforgettable experience. during the meet i swam pretty good and got best times in both of my events! but the best part of the meet was meeting my new girlfriends: the turbo girls! during the first finals session i was being some what of a creeper and took a picture of the girls without them knowing. but on the second day i got a picture with all of them and i made 5 new girlfriends! i also met cullen jones and mark gangloff (us olympians from swim mac) and got to take pictures of cullen, ciesar, and fred after the 50 freestyle with cullens camera!
saturday night the familia took my parents out to dinner. we went to a very interesting resturant that was on a farm. it was good but when i saw a very dark salchicha on my plate i became a little concerned. but im always up to try new things. so i took a bight and almost threw up. little did i know it was made up of really grose parts of an animal. on our way out of the resturant we noticed that there wernt any rabbits in the cage (there were 5 or 6 in there when we got there) and realized that we probably ate those rabbits for dinner!
today we went to la playa! (beach). all of the guys were rockin their colorful speedos and quickly ran away from the girls so we didnt have to be seen with them and their horrible tan lines! me, logan, peter, and juan miguel ran around talking in austrailian accents and got many complements on our georgous swimmer bods and sexy speedos!
now we only have one more day in españa and i am very excited to be back home but at the same time am going to miss mì familia, and living with ellie (sike!). be aware that i might talk with some what of a spanish accent when i get home!

adiós!
Ian Manzana!
