Hola Finally! Sorry for the incommunicado since I left. I'm sure the anticipation to know how things are going over here was just killing all of you. Well, it's been a good trip. I have lots to report, so here's the story... 11 & 12 JUNE - Monday & Tuesday • We left for Spain in three groups. Group 1 was small - two chaperones (me being one of them) and one student. Group 2 was a student who flew over by herself. Group 3 was the other 23 people, including our group leader. The three of us flew from the CLE to the ATL and then straight in to Barcelona. No real issues, other than a 1.5 hour wait on the runway in ATL because we couldn't go to our gate, and in Barcelona we ... read more

Él, el único, inimitable e incomprendido monstruo entre los monstruos- El Fary es Dios, dijo Torrente- se nos ha ido para siempre. Sirvan estas líneas de emocionado y sentido, a la par que torrentiano homenaje Que se lleven aquel toro del agua, que se lleven aquel toro del río que se lleven aquel que hay en la sombra,que se lleven aquel que hay escondido,pero aquel de la fuente que nadie lo toque que lo dejen tranquilo y no lo provoquen, ese toro bonito ya nació pa sementar. y ademas de bravura tiene pinta de don juan. (estribillo)-vaya torito ay torito guapo tiene botines y no va descalzo. yo sabia que no me defraudaba y se lleva detras todas las hembras,las quisiera montar todas a un tiempo a pesar de tener solo dos yerbas. pero aquel ... read more

Today I atteneded my first day of class and it was great ! Mis profesores son muy buenos ! My entries may switch between spanish and english, it is hard to learn spanish all day and then change back to english so bear with me :-). I am so excited to be in Madrid and I am really looking forward to taking full advantage of all the city has to offer. My classmates seem cool.....so having people to explore the city with shouldn´t be a problem. Madrid is quite wonderful. It´s an upscale city wiith the perfect mix of old world charm and contemporary flavor. Yesterday, I had the chance to visit the Pardo Museum and the Botanical Gardens. Although I could not take pictures in the museum, I took plenty of photos in the gardens. ... read more

Madrid Europe » Spain » Madrid » Madrid By clarkey June 18th 2007 Brian ClarkeWell I finally made it back to Madrid after an absence of almost 4 years. I can't believe it has been that long, but life has a habit of passing you by.

Hey guys, We arrived in Madrid today around ten AM and slept for a good 5 hours, we pulled an all-nighter last night. We went to dinner around eleven and the city has been absolutely nuts tonight because they had a soccer game and Madrid won, the city will definitely not sleep tonight. The plazas here are beautiful and always busy with everyone from one year old to one hundred years old walking together and enjoying the beautiful weather. We had sangria with dinner, which was great and we are really loving everything about the city. Tonight we are probably going to sleep in a little bit because we have our day planned out for tomorrow, we will post again soon to let you know what all is goin on. Love, Ben and Brady P.S. We ... read more

So I totally wrote notes so that I´d remember everything that I wanted to tell you but I now can´t find them so I´m gonna tell you everything that I remember. Monday was not a good day. I don´t even remember what I spend the day doing, I´m guessing walking around or something, no wait, YES I did walk. Ana dropped me off at the bank and I spent ages walking in completely the wrong direction on purpose, the reason? It was prettier. I´m really starting to appreciate the sun, well I did straight away but it was making me a little groggy at first. I´m looking healthy for the first time in ages :) Anyway I was going for this walk, playing the game where you smile at everyone and see how many people smile ... read more

Thursday during the day was a totally uneventful day. I took advantage of the empty house, put on my bikini and worked on my tan for the first time. Loving the colour my skin is going. Less make up required haha! The only time I went out of the house was to collect the package from my mum!! Thanks. Watching pride and prejudice slowly! All 6 hours of it. Oh Mr Darcy aka Colin Firth. Gotta love him. Him and Nicholas Cage. For older (sort of) guys, they´re hot as fuck. In the afternoon at about 5.30 we all piled into Ana´s car and went off to the theatre to see Mateo´s play. He was being a tree. His costume was so cool. Maybe even cooler then the time I was a wall in a school ... read more

So ok, I toooooooooooootally had a plan for Friday night, albeit a sketchy one. Very sketchy. I was gonna take the metro to "Sol" and take it from there. Didn´t get off to a very good start when I forgot my ticket and had to buy another, it´s OK though, I´m sure I´ll use all the journeys, I like the Madrid Metro, anyway. So I get onto the Metro, with the expected assortment of characters, it´s 11pm and there´s an array of all ages, shapes and sizes. I like that about Spain, everyone´s included. So I get off at "Sol" and am greeted by a plaza area. No idea what it´s called, I was feeling a little disorientated by the vast amount of people and wondering what I should do. Ana´s suggestions that were scribbled on ... read more

Torej, konec ugibanj. MADRID IMA NEDELJSKI AZIJA-STYLE MARKET. I LOVE MADRID. Poleg tega ima tudi churrose s čokolado. Burek is so last year! Ob 4h ponoči se tu je churrose. In točno to sva z Nino naredili v soboto zvečer. Najprej sva šli v "njen" bar na sever mesta, kjer sva zvrnili nekaj clar (clara = pivo + limonada, torej neke vrste radler). Ta bar je res fenomenalen! Menda je bilo man folka zaradi fuzbala tisti večer, saj se je ravnokar končala tekma med Zaragozo (od koder je Ninin fant) in Madridom, zato so bili vsi na drugem - fuzbalerskem koncu mesta, ampak meni je bilo vseeno bajno. Šefe in kelnar sta z Nino povsem pobratena, zato sta bila izjemno radodarna s tapasi (ampak menda manj kot ponavadi - huh?): jedli sva jamon (pršut) pa ... read more
