Alicante, Spain: 7:10 a.m. Monday through Friday, my cell phone alarm screams out a blaring, brain warping, electronic screech over and over. The instrument generally receives my agitated beating on the "silence" button for its efforts, and so begins another school day for me in this Mediterranean town home away from home.
