Six weeks we've been in Madrid, and for six weeks (okay, longer than that) this space has been quieter than usual. Not intentionally, believe me, but we've been FIGHTING since the day we got here for internet access in our apartment, knowing that this year it would certainly be possible...and just when it looked like it might not be...here I sit, typing away. Miracles never cease.
Two months ago today we flew into Madrid with our five suitcases, two backpacks, and a good idea of what we were getting ourselves into. Ha. Turns out we I kind of overpacked (really regretting those seven pairs of shorts that made the cut) – I didn’t have to rewear anything but pants for over six weeks - and as far as what we thought we were coming here to do (learning Spanish and teaching English, by the way) – we’re not doing a lot of it.
