Tomorrow I begin my adventures in Spain. Until today, I have been exploring a bit with my father. At first glance, Spain is a bigger culture shock than I anticipated. The design of the city has elements of Boston/the northeast but also a unique identity. Wandering around Madrid, my dad and I found the city tours bus a useful tool to learn about history and different prominent landmarks. Maybe it’s just because I am not familiar with the area but Madrid seems huge!
I can’t wait to explore it further and start taking classes on the modern history of Spain. I feel like that’ll provide me with a cool perspective on things. I have included some pictures from the sites that I have visited so far.
