Sorry I’ve been slow with updates. I just now was able to connect to the internet in my apartment. Today is technically day four. My days have been filled with orientation activities with the other students in my study abroad program. I live right downtown Madrid, close to many famous museums.
This is my room. As you can see, I’m still unpacking and settling in.
This is what it looks like outside my bedroom window. The front of the house opens to the street, but I like being on the side because it muffles the city noise. Temperatures during the day have been in the 90s here, and very few places have air conditioning. I’ve been wearing dresses to stay cool.
Yesterday I visited the Reina Sofia art museum in Madrid. The art and the building were spectacular. I look forward to seeing all the museums!
