I can´t believe i´m actually here!! This is crazy! And I can´t believe I´m awake right now. The past two days were probably two of the longest in my life. Starting my journey off on two hours of sleep probably wasn´t the best thing. My first flight took off at 7 am to Houston. I had a 3 hour layover and then flew to Newark, NJ. At 8.30 NJ time we flew off to Madrid, Spain. The minute I walked on the plane I started to feel a hint of Spain. Everybody around me, including the flight attendants, were speaking spanish. Luckily a girl sat by me that spoke English as well. It was about an 8 hour flight. Of course my movie screen in front of me was broken so I watched a movie on my ipod and tried to sleep. I was fed dinner, and then breakfast...weird! ha It was 10 am when we landed in Spain. Luckily everything finished out as well as it started with me getting all of luggage and finding my friend Roger who was picking me up. The day that followed was long with a lot of figuring odds and ends out. For those who don´t know, Brittney Maxwell a best friend from high school, is here with me too! We both got cell phones so we could contact each other easily wherever we are. I was at the Molina´s house all day. They are the sweetest people! They fed us a huge lunch and a smaller dinner (that´s how they do it here) and were sad to say bye to me so soon when I left late last night to come meet my Spanish family. They are also wonderful people. It´s a mom, Carmen, and two daughters Christina - 13, Casilda -9.
They...well guess me to...we live in an apartment just North of Madrid. It´s VERY modern and cute. I have a tiny little room that has a shower and a sink in it. And my bed is a couch that has a pull out bed. haha awesome huh? It doesn´t quite lay flat so I sleep slanted but I love it. haha I slept like a baby last night. probably because I had 4 hours of sleep in about 36 hours or something like that. So I woke up this morning at 9.30 and unpacked my bags into my tiny little closet. Carmen couldn´t believe how much I brought...oops! haha But I know that I am going to love it here. I can´t wait to get into everything and explore. Sorry so long, lots to say! I love you and miss you all!
Oh and I can´t post pictures yet because I am still trying to get the internet on my computer. but they´re coming soon!
