estoy de vuelta en madrid

flying back to españa

Estoy de vuelta en Madrid = I’m back in Madrid!

After a long journey (over 20 hours, door-to-door from my house in California to my apartment in Madrid), I’m FINALLY back in Madrid. It’s strange, it feels surreal because everything feels so familiar, but still distant. My body feels out of whack from the jet lag, and I’ve been sleeping/feeling zombie-like.

I’ve noticed that my “neighbors” (the indignados) that were protesting in the center of Madrid in tents are now gone.

Now time to readjust back to Spanish-mode :).


estoy vivo

Sorry all for my brief hiatus. This week, I got back from a nice family trip to Utah and Arizona (Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and Lake Powell). Then yesterday I went to a taping of The Price is Right!

I am super SWAMPED trying to do many things at home in lovely California before I return to Madrid next week! I can’t believe my short stay at home in California is soon coming to an end. I have been having a great time at home hanging out with family and friends, and enjoying all the good stuff home has to offer. I feel like I am TWO people, I am the Spain me and the USA me. While I am looking forward to going back to Madrid, I am going to be really sad to leave my friends and family back home…. Why can’t California and Spain be closer, or flights become much cheaper?

But stay tuned…more photos and tales to come :D
