If you thought I was a bad blogger before, you must think I'm truly the worst blogger on Earth now. Or that I'm dead. Neither of which is actually the case...well, the first one I guess I can't really judge, but hopefully not. Anyway.
Part of the reason I've not been blogging is that I was really busy tying up the school year and saying goodbye to all of my friends. Then I was really busy moving. Yes, that's right, I moved! I'm now living in (well, near) Madrid, though just for the summer. I'm an au pair for a family here, and since I last posted I've been getting settled in and getting to know the family and the area. Oh, and also watching fútbol, lots of fútbol...since the Eurocup is currently going on and I've got to cheer on Spain.
But by now I'm pretty well accustomed to the scorching heat and dry landscape of where I live, as well as the people and the job. So I'm back to blogging, yay!
So currently I'm wondering if there are any current or former Madrileños out there who might want to echarme una mano and give me some suggestions of things I should make sure to do before I leave the area. I only have 6 more weeks to experience it all! Of course, I would also love to tomar un café with anyone who might be willing to help out someone new to the city. Thanks in advance.
This is the view from my morning run--I feel like I'm living in the desert!
I really love this one lone white house, it makes me think of Don Quixote and lonely windmills.
Oh, did I mention that I live in the town where the Spanish national soccer team trains? Obviously, no sightings right now since they're off in Poland kicking ass and taking names, but when they get back, I'm excited to try to see them!!
