Favorite things about Madrid

{Listen to “these are a few of my favorite things” from the Sound of Music to get you in the right mindset}

This is my working list of things I love about Madrid. Not in order of importance to me, just in order as I think of them.

The metro system here!!! Look at it!!! This is just the metro! This isn’t even the bus or the cercanias (commuter train) or the many high speed trains that take you all over (and even out of) Spain!

How lovely the UC3M campus is (even if its not an ancient European University)

xmasThe cheerful christmas lights! 🙂

The always beautiful parque de buen retiro. I honestly go here at least once a week to recharge.

This genius, genius idea! You have a dish rack OVER the sink in the cabinet so the dishes dry. Where has this been all my life!? Just pure genius.

My lovely school colleagues! They are so interesting and kind.
