I have been in Madrid just over three months. I am still a visitor.
I'm striving always to see the world with a photographer's eye.
Some cities have no equal. They stand alone, suspended by romanticized reputations built of cinematic allure. Even people who have never seen a map somehow have visions of these cities in their mind. Paris is such a place.
While I'll enjoy writing and traveling, the thing that's giving me the greatest thrill at the moment is photography
Over the weekend, our troupe of Anglos, all in Madrid to study Spanish and/or teach English, took advantage of the city's ideal location for a day trip to Toledo.
It can’t be overstated, moving to a new country is a Herculean task, like scaling a brick wall with your bare hands.
Madrid is a superb vacation destination, but we aren't on vacation. This is our lives now.
