¿Bailamos?

Es una tarde aburrida de invierno. Acabas de comer y te sientes a reventar. De comida, claro, pero sobre todo… ¡de ganas de bailar! ¿A quién no le ha pasado?

A weekend filled with family

This past weekend, my mom visited me in Madrid! It was her first time in Spain, and she loved la vida madrileña! She does not speak Spanish so I enjoyed communicating for her with restaurant servers and shopkeepers.

Where To Study

Mentor Activity – Rollerblading!

Every other week or so our mentors will organize an event outside of our bi-weekly dinners, often through CityLife. They are always so much fun and a great way to get to know Madrid through the eyes of a college student. There have been activities like karaoke, wine tasting and cycling. Same spirit of La […]

My Sketchbook Class

Atocha Botanical Garden This semester, I am taking my first-ever studio art class through the Tufts-Skidmore Spain program. The class is appropriately titled, Sketchbook: Walking in the City because instead of meeting in a classroom, we meet at new places and museums in Madrid. My class meets on Thursdays, and I find it a great […]
