I can’t believe my parents trip to Spain has come and gone so quickly. Seriously, it wasn’t so long ago that I was frantically SPRINTING to the metro to get them because my alarm never went off (and my computer was dead and it was dark out so I had no clue what time it was AND it was Christmas day so the metros ran every never minutes and there was not ONE person working in the stations and I was a lunatic!!!). But here we are, almost a month later and they are back safe and sound in the U.S. I wrote 3 posts detailing our trip to the South of Spain, but we did lots of other things while they were here. The first week was a good balance of exploring Madrid and relaxing in my apartment. (…and going to 100 Montaditos. We went maybe…5 times….in two weeks. At first it was irritating. But then I embraced it)
“Tamara, where do you get that huge forehead and curly hair???” Mystery solved.
–> Went for walks. I have never done so much walking in such a short amount of time. But it’s a good way to see the city.
–> Went to Museums. The Prado, Reina Sofia, Thyssen.
If you know my mom at all, you know this picture shows her completely in her element. Cracks me up.
