She came by plane, by train, and by taxi

What a whirlwind of a trip to Sevilla

I am officially in Spain and I managed to make it to Sevilla. Thank goodness. I don't think it would have gone as smoothly without my new friends that I met. You never know who you'll meet on a plane! I received a personal tour of Madrid and they helped to make sure I made it to the train station and, more importantly, the correct platform. It was an amazing day, although not without a ton of stress about not being able to let my parents know I'm here, a headache, and a long nap. The food I've had so far has been wonderful. This morning I tried my first pincho de tortilla, or Spanish omelet, and YUM.

I will put up some of the pictures I took today in the photo gallery but I am on my tablet so I just took pictures of the pictures I took, and they are therefore bad quality. When I find an adapter with a grounding prong, I will actually upload them but I refuse to try and mcguiyver it and electricute myself.

It has certainly been an experience so far. My host family is very nice and accommodating but speak very little English, which will be wonderful practice but my brain hurts from over processing at the moment. I am exhausted though, probably going to get to sleep in a little. First, however, I am researching cell phone plans because I am hoping to get that done tomorrow so I don't have to be stressed later if I get lost. I think I will get one with internet so I can use the navigation.

All is well :).

Hi, Krysten! Your mom forwarded to us the link to your blog and I can't tell you how much we are enjoying reading about your experiences. Please keep us on the loop, ok? You can practice your Spanish with me anytime. Isn't the tortilla de papa absolutely delicious? Coincidentally, we've been having that for lunch since Sunday when Peter cooked one. It is my comfort food and he makes it on special occasions.
Anyway, what a neat adventure you are having. Enjoy it and stay safe,
Alicia
