Found a New Flat

I have been in Madrid now for 5 days now and finally got a room. I have a double bed, balcony,cleaning lady, big closet,  5 minutes walk from the park, natural lighting, and more. Plus, the price is right and all bills are included in the rent.

 I feel so lucky! I am ready to start working on my green card and planning trips for the coming school year. This year is going to be great!

Landed in Madrid on 23/09

Yesterday was not too bad. I landed in the late afternoon in Madrid. I didn’t have a bad case of jet lag.   I wasn’t in a lot of pain, I have had a back problem for the last year  ,during my flight. Last year I was dying during my flight with pain. My back has some what healed. I hope this problem becomes less and less. I ended up sharing a cab to the centre and got to my hostel by 5:30 p.m. I am so glad to be back in Madrid. Now I am just trying to focus on trying to find a piso (flat) in before work starts next week The weather is very nice right now. I can wear tights and light sweaters and not feel like I am going to die from the heat. It’s been a little hard trying to find a place. I hope I land something soon. Girl Scouts starts up next week. I am looking forward to this school year. Good vibes. Good vibes.

Big Bend National Park in West Texas

I spend two days in Big Bend National Park with my family. The trip was nice and relaxing. I see this park as an escape from the city life I live. I find the desert to be enchanting. I will never understand what draws me in to the beauty of the desert.  There are not a lot of people who inhabit West Texas and there’s not a lot to do as in entertainment. It’s the fact I can be in the middle of no where and enjoy the beauty of nature around me that attracts me to this park.  The rocks and cliffs in the park tell stores of what happened many years ago in the past. This park is not as popular as Yellowstone National Park, but I believe Big Bend should be visited at least once in someone’s life. I caught some amazing sunrises and sunsets in this park. Why? There were no buildings interfering with the view of the sunset. Here are some pictures from my trip.
