Despite cancelled travel plans and being pretty bummed about it, I had a great weekend in Madrid.
I feel guilty not taking advantage of every long weekend I have here to travel and explore new places,
but sometimes it's nice to just enjoy where I live, relax and explore my temporary home.
Since it was a holiday weekend for Spain, the streets were jam packed with shoppers, families and tourists.
The Christmas markets are up as well as the lights! There are people selling boiled/cooked/ihavenoideawhattheyarebutidon'tlikethem nuts, yams and corn on the cob.
And on so many corners are people playing the most beautiful Christmas music.
I hung out with friends for Mimosa brunch, Mexican food (!) lunch, cafe con leche in the sun and even nights out where I lasted all the way till 3am!! Baby steps to the normal 6am Spaniard nights out.
I started Homeland.
Huge huge mistake.
I am going to be wishing the work day away so I can go home and watch more episodes.
