I have been, in the words of my sister, sadly neglecting my blog.
To remedy this… I will blog.
To start with, an update on what I’ve been doing:
I have become overrun with projects. Besides my normal au pairing duties, I have also begun tutoring a two and a five year old for two hours every day (note: I have to travel by train AND metro for almost two hours to get there… so a total of six hours…. every day), as well as keeping up with my ever-growing demand for freelance article writing.
I’ve been a busy bee.
OK. I’ll stop now.
Basically, this is my way of saying that I haven’t forgotten about my poor blog, but just that sleep has taken a greater precedence.
Seriously, done with the onomatopoeia.
But never fear!
I was treating myself to some downtime (in this case meaning “aimless wandering around the heart of Madrid”), and I ended up near Palacio Real near sunset.
However, I was not on the usual road. I found an interesting little side-street from the Opera metro station that gave me a birds eye view of the Palace and adjacent Cathedral at sunset. The result was nothing short of incredible:
I realized, once again, how lucky I am to be having this experience. I’ve met amazing people, seen amazing things, and have already made so many memories. The past six weeks have been a blast, and I can’t wait to start delving even deeper in the my European adventure.
