This whole time I’ve been planning the summer trip with my students I’ve been thinking I’d be the only chaperone (it’s only 11 kids, after all). Well….. that’s all changed now! I’ve got another teacher going with me now. Probably a good thing, in case anything should happen to go wrong. Will know for sure tomorrow who it’s gonna be, but it looks like it will be one of the Spanish teachers. That’s cool, b/c I really like him a lot. He usually does a trip to Spain every year but this year there weren’t enough kids to do it (again I’ll say it, DARN ECONOMY). He knows Madrid like the back of his hand, good thing for me b/c that’s one of the two places on the trip I’ve never visited. He says we can easily take a day trip to Toledo on the train. OH… and I bought my ticket back to Paris from Madrid today. 9 EUROS!!!! MERCI, RYAN AIR! Well, you do have to pay 15 euros for one bag and it can’t weigh more than 15 KILOS????? Gonna have to pack WAY lighter than usual. Ever flown Ryan Air? Wonder what it’s like. Can’t be worse than Southwest Air. C’mon… 9 Euros? As long as we take off and land safely, I’m game!
