I cant believe I've been here for a month already.... time flies by so fast!!!
Here are some of the wonderful things we did this week:
Number One: Go to McDonalds. yes, shocking I know. I don't even like McDonalds--but the smell of American food wafting down the street I go by everyday finally lured me inside. I had the best HAPPY meal of my life, even though according to this picture it gave us Jaundice.
Number Two: On Friday, we went to La Reina Sofia, which is the modern art museum in Madríd, Personally, ABSTRACT art is not my favorite, but here are some of the highlights:
Guernica- Even though its kinda weird I really like this painting because it represents the cruelties of war--especially against innocent civilians. It stands as a symbol of anti-war movement even today.
|Guernica: Pablo Picasso 1937|
|The Enigma of Hitler: Salvador Dalí 1939|
In Uclés we explored another Catedral, but this time we really explored it. We got there so early in the morning that no one else was there besides our group. Also, pretty much any door that was open and didn't have a sign saying 'private room' we went into....

First, we went to another cathedral (surprised?) which was awesome, but we weren't allowed to take any pictures. However, that didnt stop me from sneaking a few in.
|The stained glass is all yellow: hence the yellow glow. SUPERbonita|
|I love these girls:)|
|Spitting contest!! Syke. We were spitting off the bridge because it looked really pretty falling in the light.|
