Better than a Sunday Afternoon Nap

20140504-120336.jpgThis afternoon I got to meet up with an American friend, Leah, who has been teaching in Madrid this past school year. I met up with her and one of her friends (a fellow English teacher) by the Sagrada Familia. We ambled up the Avinguda Gaudi and sat to chat over some coffee. Leah and I were in Hungary for a couple of weeks together four years ago (and we are both Asbury College Alums). Today was especially fun because I got to hear their stories about Spanish culture and their love of the people. At first, three months in one place sounded like a while, but after hearing them talk about their past year here, I felt a tinge of sadness for the day that I depart from this beautiful place. More than that, I am filled with thankfulness today.
