There are some full suitcases in front of my door. Eduardo’s cupboard is empty and there is an opressive silence in my room. Even his Mexican flag, which used to decorate our room so nicely, has disappeared without leaving a trace. It looks like he has never been here.
Eduardo’s time as my roommate is unfortunately already over. Even though he’s only going on vacation and will be back to stay another week before he actually returns to his native Mexico, he will no longer share a room with me. His successor is already on his way and will move into his part of the room tomorrow. Eduardo will be staying in Conor’s room for his last week in Ireland, after his return from holiday. It’s going to be very strange to have a new roommate. I have been sharing a room with Eduardo for almost half a year and now he is leaving and he will be replaced by someone I have never met before.
Now you probably want me to talk about the new roommate, who is already on his way to Ireland while you are reading this. Well, I would love to tell you more about him but the only thing I know is that he is from Spain.
If you were just thinking about Spanish stereotypes, I couldn’t blame you as I did exactly the same to be honest. 🙂
Let’s just hope that this mysterious perhaps Flamenco-dancing new roommate is friendly and polite.
