This is day 2 in Madrid and I am loving it so far!
I’m staying with a few girls who are on their second year teaching. They’re showing me around, helping me with all the logistical stuff and geographical stuff. They’re all way better than I am at Spanish as well, so that is helpful. It’s nice to find new friends so quickly. We all have 3 basic things in common (being teachers, being 20something, being expats) so it makes for an instant bond.
The city is great. All the buildings are so cute and old. I just feel so surrounded by European culture and Spanish culture, it’s so great. We’ve gone out to eat twice and cooked 1 meal, I really like the food here so far.
More later when I have time!
