About two and a half weeks ago I arrived in Spain to begin my semester abroad. Spain so far has been absolutely beautiful! We spent the first few days in Madrid, visited El Escorial and Toledo, and then finally made our way to Granada where I will be studying for the next three and a half months.
Toledo was an amazing Medieval city surrounded on three sides by a river. Everything was just pulsing with history and I couldn’t believe how old some of the building are.
This is the view from El Albaicín overlooking the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevadas in Granada. I have never, ever seen a view like this before. I am so lucky to have some more time to explore this beautiful city.
Of course, I had to scope out some yarn stores in my area. I’ve only had the chance to go to one so far (‘Home Suit Home’). I’m not sure if I totally understand the play-on-words that’s going on, but I was very impressed with their prices and got some yarn to make both my roommate and my host mother a scarf.
