These past few weeks have been super busy with work and sicknesses jumping back and forth among our apartment. But we are all back to normal and still happy to be in Spain!

The latest excitement is that one of our best friends, Allison, that we met in Granada came to live with us for 2 months! She just got here on February 1 but the time is already going by way too fast!!! Allison is taking a Spanish class here in Madrid and then each night brings back new phrases and vocabulary for all of us! :) And starting this weekend we will start travelling, which we are all very excited about! This weekend we will be travelling to Zaragoza, which is a city north east of Madrid, to visit our friend Sara! We can't wait to see her and to explore her city!

In the meantime we have been showing Allison all the great things Madrid has to offer and also been having fun meeting her classmates from all over the world. She has classmates from Switzerland, Austria, England and Korea. It is really fun to meet people from different countries and backgrounds!

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” -Maya Angelou
