My New Home

26 Oct

I can’t believe we’ve almost been in Madrid for a month now. It seems like we just moved in yesterday, and we’re still working on decorating, organizing, and making out little apartment more of a home!

So far we’ve been lucky to find an awesome place!

With a view:

Our View

Close to the essentials:


Retiro Park


And I’ve been surprised at some American comforts!

Dunkin Donuts (AKA Dunkin Coffee)

Organic Eggs

A 24 Hour Store (or 25?)

As well as memories of my darling Andalucía:



I’ve turned the big 25!

And started a side business– Spanish Cooking Classes!

Cooking with Spanish Sabores!

We’ve been exploring the city this sunny October…

Its monuments:

And markets

San Anton Market

Frozen Yogurt!

Hopefully November will be just as exciting. So far we tentatively plan to:

– Learn to make sushi

– Go see a concert

– Have Ale’s parents visit

– Run a 5K

– Decorate our apartment!

We’ll see what we actually end up doing. For now, we’re happy to be here!

    So fun! I love making sushi, although I’ve never done it totally on my own. Please post pretty sushi pics.
