Where are you going?

So the next question we often hear is “Where exactly are you going in Spain?”. Well allow me to fill you in, if you don’t already know. We’re going to the South-East of Spain to a city called Murcia. So what do we know about this town? Not a whole lot actually mainly what we’ve read on the internet … here’s what we know:

“Murcia is one of Spain’s least known regions, even among Spaniards themselves, and first-time visitors are often surprised by the diversity of this small region and the friendliness of its people, Murcianos.  Fruits and market-garden products are important to the Murcian economy, and are exported all over Europe. Murcia is also famous for its excellent tapas.” It is also apparently very HOT, being sunny about 300 days of the year! We’ve also heard that the friends there are known for being very loving, which is nice to hear. Also there are many french speakers from Africa, especially northern Africa…so lots of territory. The group where we are going is hosted in a Spanish congregation but even though the group is small in number they are having all of the meetings in French every week. 

We’re looking forward to learning more in about two months 🙂
