Last Thursday, my friend Emily arrived, a little loopy from the flight, but otherwise ready to begin her year in Spain. Since then, we’ve met up with some new friends and done some walking exploration, but our current focus is on finding an apartment. As anyone who has moved to Madrid will tell you (and has told us), attaining a flat in this city is a gargantuan task.
With any luck, I’ll be writing next week’s post from my new home. If not, I might be writing it from a café with all of my stuff at my feet.
Since I’m a bit preoccupied with that search right now, I’m not going to write a long post today (hey, I can hear you celebrating back there). Instead, here are some fotos from my first month in Madrid.
