Hello from the other side (Adele voice), but really I will be spending the next four months in Alcalá, which is 30 minutes outside of Madrid. So yes, hello from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean/ world. The flight was 9 hours and passed quickly because I slept the whole time. I will be studying at El universidad de Alcala in el Instituto de Franklin. All my classes will be in Spanish and my host family only speaks Spanish so talk about cultural immersion. Below are some photos from my first two days here:
The flight crew wasn’t thrilled to put my suitcase on the plane

I like Alcalá so far! Headed to Madrid on Friday. Have a great semester to everyone who starts classes soon!
