Navidad news

Plaza Cervantes, Santiago de Compostela

My stomach is shuddering at the Valencian orange and cup of coffee I have just consumed. Come at me, litmus test. (Sorry, that is not at all newsworthy. Just pressing at the moment.)

Anyways, I am writing from the airport in Madrid. A flight home, you might guess? To bask in the glow of family and friends and overplayed Christmas music and general revelry? Nay. This pauper cannot rationalize paying for a pricey ticket home, especially after having spent less than two months in Spain. So this is the first time I will be missing Christmas with my family, and it’s weird. I’m trying not to think about it. On the plus side, though, I’m spending winter break meandering through Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, and Belgium. So it could be worse 😉

A very feliz navidad to you! Until next year!

      1. Hahaha!! 😉 I visit Santiago about 6-10 times a year. I like to walk the streets and photograph what I see, specially in winter. The rain in Santiago is the most beautiful rain in the world. I live one hour from there. 🙂
