At 11:00 am local time, I will be leaving Madrid to begin the journey back to California. With a quick stop in DC, I’ll land at LAX a little bit before 7 pm, Pacific Time. While I’m sure the flight will be long, I’m looking forward to doing three things immediately when I get back: seeing my family and friends, getting my hands on my new iPhone, and eating my first meal back (which will be a Wood Ranch Tri Tip Salad, fyi).
I’ve had a great experience in Madrid: made new friends, picked up some solid Spanish slang, had a great time at my job, traveled to a ton of cool places, and learned a new city. While I’m undeniably sad to leave Spain, I’m looking forward to a southern California summer…and starting law school.
It’s been a fun 9 months, Madrid, echaré de menos!
