Even though I've unpacked, the room looks pretty bare because I didn't bring anything for decoration. Ana was kind enough to loan me sheets and a blanket until I can buy my own. Today todo está cerrado, everything is closed, because it's a big national holiday: Día de Reyes, which is what we call Epiphany in the Episcopal church. My dad, who grew up in Puerto Rico, knows Jan. 6 as Three Kings Day. It's the day the three magi brought gifts to baby Jesus. Most Spanish-speaking Catholic countries celebrate it by staying home from work and exchanging gifts. So I'll have to start my errands tomorrow.

I really didn't get to talk much to Ana because she came to Pamplona only to give me the keys and show me the apartment. As soon as she had showed me around, she and her bf drove back to her hometown, which is an hour from here. But from our brief interactions she seems super nice — especially considering she drove an hour just to show me in!
She's coming back tomorrow, the second roommate will return on the day after, and I'm not sure when the third roommate will return.
