City Slicka to Spanish Chica

11 Jan

Way back in 2004, I was working as an Interim Slut in the hectic world of Management Consulting. For those of you fortunate enough not to know what an Interim Slut is, I´ll explain.  Overworked consultant type person who “does” the grotty work and doesn´t just “advise” others on what to do.  Underpaid enough to have to take anything that´s offered.  Well, as long as it was legal.  Any time, any place, any where…that was me.  Almost. Travelling extensively and living largely out of of a suitcase, I decided it was time to take a break, enjoy some sunshine, learn a new language and relax. So far, I´m still living the Southern Spanish life and can’t get my head around going back to a “real” job. Here’s the story so far…
