School's in Session

I've moved in with my family and had my first few days of class! The family is sweet, though we haven't had a whole lot of contact yet. They appear a little gruff, but are very nice and accommodating. They live on the third floor (actually the 4th) and I have my own room which is simple but nice and my very own balcony that's gorgeous!
Classes so far have been fairly easy as I am only taking 2 language courses in the early part of the day and wont start my elective courses until the end of September. There are only 10 people in my class: 4 from Germany, 2 from Holland, and 4 from the US (1 being me). Since I am not swamped with work yet I have time to walk around and enjoy the sights and sounds of Madrid. This afternoon I am going to be taking a fieldtrip with the school the the Reina Sofia museum.
¡Hasta Luego!

(Sorry for being really cheesy, it's hard to be witty in blogs)

The Palacio Velazques which is supposed to have an art exhibit in it, but was inexplicably closed

Did you study Velazquez in Snra. E-D's class? You should check it out if the exhibit does have his work.

Hey Kimo-Sabe! That is a nice view from the balcony (looks like you could high-5 the person on the balcony to the left and right w/o having to stretch), but we need to see some pics of the college campus. You room looks about the size of Aloha Stadium, so I guess you must do a lot of sprints and long-jumps in the evening. If you need something from the States, lemme know; I could send you some more clothes hangers. Walmart is having a big sale! I tell you what, I am going to buy some Walmart t-shirts for your host family, and you can tell them that it is the name of a classy clothing company!! When the trend catches on, I will buy Wally World t-shirt for 49 cents and you can sell them over there for 10 bucks. "R.O.I." Anyway, have fun, be safe, yada yada, and all that junk.
