Hola Chicos. At last I am on my newest European adventure in
Madrid! As I mentioned a few posts
ago, in efforts to make my bucket list a little shorter, I took the opportunity
to go study Spanish here for a month. Am I still generally at a loss for
Spanish phrases? Claro que si, but I just arrived on Sunday so I will learn!
While the weather has been up and down, it’s nice to be here before the tourist
season picks up. I can live with the Madrileños and see the city in action. I
loved visiting Barcelona (don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who hasn’t) but I
was eager to go somewhere new. Madrid seems to be a perfect place to live for a
few weeks. There is lots to see but the best parts need to be uncovered. On my
first day walking about, I went on
the perfunctory expedition, walking from el Sol to Plaza Mayor to el Palacio
Real. Of course, I whipped out my camera the second I exited the metro.
