American in Spain

Local Ze

December 5, 2007

This morning, random curiosity caused me to search YouTube for "Colindres", and I ended up finding a video blog by an American, named Scott, living in Laredo, the next town over from me. He arrived in late October. It's funny to see him explore and discover his new surroundings, just as I did two years ago. His charisma, silliness, editing, and creativity immediately reminded me of Ze Frank, which is a huge compliment to any vlogger. He's got a great apartment right on the beach, and works at a preschool in Colindres, presumably teaching English. Before coming here, he spent a few years in Norway, for which he also had a blog.

What's weird is that, Scott and I were at the same little town festival thingy (one of these where they give out food for free) the other day where I took this photo of the arroz con leche.

Here's his video of the event: (those of you that have visited me here should recognize the tunnel)

And his Halloween party at his school is a pretty great video too:

Glad to have ya around, Scott! We'll have to catch a cerveza sometime and talk about Scandinavia.
