Final Reflection

Wow, I can not believe that it has been two weeks since my return from Spain.  I truly miss it every single day.  I miss the food, the people, the culture, the nightlife and so much more.  It was a struggle to readjust to my simple life in Wilmington, Delaware.  First off, Jet lag hit…
