As soon as I left the airport, I got into a taxi and made my way to my señoras house. The cab dropped me off and took off. I had no phone, no contact information, no idea where the school was, and no one was with me. Needless to say, I was scared. I buzzed up to the apartment of my señora...no answer
As I was unpacking my belongs, one of my roomates arrived. His name is Luis he was born in Italy but lives in spain. He also speaks like a million languages (spanish, portuguese, german and english). Then Jean arrived...the frenchman who has lived in Indonesia for most of his life. He speaks French, spanish, english, and indonesian. The german one, Max, wouldnt arrive till later in the night.
Jean and I decided to head out into the city to meet my friends from school, Adam and Sarah for some lunch and ¡¡¡¡SANGRIA!!! the best drink ever. We wound up going to a restaurant called Pizza Jardin and getting food with several of our friends. It was a great afternoon.
That night, my friends and I continued our exploration of the city by going down to Sol, the main plaza in Madrid. We bar and tapas hopped around the city and didnt return until late at night. It was a great first day in madrid. Now a month and a half into my trip, I still have yet to find a European city that rivals the night life and the amount of things to do than Madrid, Spain¡
