Barcelona bound, Semana Santa, new beginnings

1. I´m going to Barcelona in two days!! Can´t wait to see more of Spain.

2. Religious processions are taking over the streets of Valladolid in honor of Semana Santa or Easter as we call will come shortly.

3. I´m moving into a new apartment at the beginning of April. This is bittersweet, but with new beginnings come new hope.

Midnight crowds, continuing on, and cloudy river

1. Only in Spain are the streets absolutely ghost town empty at 3 in the afternoon for siesta and bustling with people of all ages at 3 in the morning on a weekend.

2. Somehow I get out of bed, into the shower, and to work today. A day that´s extremely difficult to face.

3. On a walk from school to school, I admire the windy ripple effect on the river, and how I can still see undistorted puffy white clouds in the reflection.
