Brief Reflection Before My Final Weeks in Madrid :(

April 27, 2010

I only have one more day of classes! I then have finals next week, depart for Lisbon, go to Northern Spain after that, and finally return to Madrid for my final weekend here! It’s so crazy. I would have to say, though, that this trip has not entirely flown by, I have really done a lot and enjoyed the city as much as I could. I am constantly finding something to do here, and if I cannot find anything, I go to the Buen Retiro, which is the Central Park of Madrid. I have been to six museums and I have plans to do two more this weekend. I’m fairly certain that I have done everything I wanted to do and so much more, but I guess I should look over my guide books to make sure. Also, I might go to a bullfight on Sunday, but I cannot make up my mind….

Also, it has been in the 80s, so my classmates and I have been wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip flops, and we are still sweating, but the Madrileños are still wearing sweaters, scarves, and boots! They look at us like we are strange for wearing such clothing, but I cannot even comprehend how they put up with the heat! I understand that I am acclimated to colder weather, but boots in 80 degree weather?! Unbearable.
