Today marked my first day of school at Estudio Sampere. Fortunately, what I thought was going to be a day consisting of a three-and-a-half hour Spanish course turned out to be a quick placement exam, followed by an optional evening mixer — also known as a copa de bienvenido. I think I’m going to like this easy come, easy go atmosphere!
Right across from Estudio Sampere is the Retiro Park. It’s huge, beautiful, and full of life. You could think of it as Madrid’s version of Central Park. So Ricardo gave us a brief tour on the way to school. I can’t wait to spend a whole day there exploring.
After walking all day (and getting a little lost on our way back home with no guide), Casie and I were delighted to find another delicious home cooked dinner. We feasted on roasted chicken, fresh bread, and baked zucchini with tomatoes and onions. Oh, and for dessert, a most lovely presented flan!
