Back home

It has now been exactly a week since I came home from Europe.  And the experience I had abroad was more meaningful and impactful than I could have ever imagined before hand.  Before I left for this program I was very anxious and worried about speaking Spanish in the work place and the pressures and…

How can it be over all ready?

The last week of my internship may have actually been the most challenging for me. As I described in my last post I had to complete a very large project before the end of the week and I had to do so under challenging circumstances working from home. It seems silly complaining about be able…

My Last Week

This will be my last weekend in Madrid which I can scarcely believe. I have come to absolutely love Madrid and I truly wish I could stay longer. I am of course excited to return home to see my friends and my family but I will really miss my time in Madrid and Spain. This…

My Life in Spain

Wow I can’t believe I am already talking about week 3. It feels like I have only be here for maybe a week but time really does fly by. In this last week I have been working on researching ad writing another video script about CONSUL which is an open source online public participation software…

Dos besos y dos semanas

After two weeks in Spain and one week of work done, I have really started to gain my footing in Madrid. I have started to get a feel for where everything is and how to get from place to place. One of my favorite things to do is take the metro somewhere and wander until…
