We still cannot believe that we are in Spain now! The first few days we felt very tired because of the plane ride and the time difference, but we used our inner strength (and a little coffee…in reality a large amount of coffee) and we explored Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Immediately we notice how old and different the architecture was, but it was so beautiful! We also saw many other tourists that spoke many different languages. We did not realize how big Madrid is! There are so many different street, parks and restaurants with a variety of food. We really enjoyed our first class, although it was difficult to remember what we learned in other classes about Cervantes and we all come from different levels of Spanish. We are so excited for the next few weeks and what they offer for us, and we hope our Spanish gets better during our time here!
