Here is the schedule of a normal day in the lovely Spain.
7-7:30- Buenas días! Time to wake up, get out of bed, and get ready for the day.
8:15- Omnomnom, Breakfast time. Our señora sets out breakfast the night before so she can sleep in. Fun fact, they don’t have cold milk in Spain, so if you were planning on cold milk with your cereal, think again.
8:30- Better leave for school! They shut the doors when class starts and it is very rude to interrupt!
9:00-Time for class! My school, along with other elementary and high school, starts now.
1:30-Done with class. Yay! Time to walk home for lunch.
2:30-3:00- Lunch will be served around this time, or later. The biggest meal of the day here, and usually the most delicious!
3:30-Siesta time!!! Take a rest, a nap, read, or get homework done. All the stores are closed at this time, but some cafes are open.
5:00- Siesta finishes and stores open again.
6:00-Merienda. Snack time! Oh, and snacks usually mean an ice cream, or churros, or something delicious and dessert-like. And coffee, of course. (Thank goodness they have decaf).
This is time to go out with friends, shop, go to the park, just “salir” la casa. It’s pretty much expected.
9:30- Dinner time! The smaller meal, more of a lunch/snack like pizza or sandwiches. And don’t forget dessert, which is always fruit.
12:00- Time to go out! Go get tapas, go to a bar (restaurant), a discoteca, or go dancing otherwise.
3:00-7:00 AM- come home, sleep, and do it again! Of course we don’t do this on school nights, and I have yet to return this late. After all, jetlag is real.
