Itinerary update

For anyone following my progress by sticking little pins on a map, I added a week here in Salamanca (since I didn't want to have to leave the day immediately following the exam, and - to be honest - I haven't had that much time yet to explore the city fully). Then, on September 1st, it's back to Madrid for a few days, before continuing to Ireland, from where I will leave for London, and my flight back to San Francisco on September 17th.

Note to self: Buy more pins.

So, will you be in London at all, or just flying through from Ireland to San Francisco?

Buy plenty of pins, because in Sunday's newspaper I saw this very interesting article about how Buenos Aires is the new destination for "turismo linguistico del español". Language courses seem much cheaper than aqu´en España, and there is the DELE superior in November (assuming this week's DELE intermedio goes OK).

God forbid I should ever, like, actually *work* again.

Snufkin: I suspect I will just be passing through Heathrow on the way back from Ireland. Although when I was planning this whole trip back in January, I had great notions of jetting around Europe, using Spain as a base. Obviously, this has not happened, for a variety of reasons, inertia being one, but also because I realize that I prefer being somewhere for a reasonably long stretch of time. I've really been enjoying having the time to get into a certain rhythm in each of the cities I've spent time in this spring and summer.
