My Iberian Immersion By Morgan Hartley I have left "the bubble" to go blindly live a year as a high school junior in Spain. I left behind my cozy little home in La Cañada on August 30 to meet up in Washington, D.C. with dozens of other pumped-up, adventure-seeking American Field Services students headed to all points in Europe. All I knew of my heading was an address, a family's name, and three years worth of Spanish at LCHS. My body was filled with a nauseating mix of excitement, curiosity, trepidation, and anxiety.

The few summer weeks I had in Spain were among the best of my life. Two glorious weeks of fun in the med, festival nights and medieval carnivals were all set off by the last sweet school bell. My house became nothing more then a place to sleep, and maybe pilfer a plate of food if I had no money to buy from a market. The bed in question was only used during the daylight hours, for the night offered such an intoxicating selection of activities that any weariness seamed to be expelled from me. Just when I thought that I could no more — aching eyes from lack of sleep, sunburned skin, and a hurt body from too much aggressive sport, Hogueras came.
