Three airplanes, two books, a nap and a couple of practice problems in an LSAT book later – I’ve been awake for about 30 hours now, and we’re all hoping I make it through the welcome dinner tonight (it is free after all). I’ve finished unpacking although we have a closet that is about 2 feet wide for two people. After we first arrived, I abandoned my luggage for a walk through the city to a tapas bar (where we had our first pitcher of sangria!!). Alas, I forgot my camera, which has been an unfortunate theme since its acquisition. Afterwards A trip to IKEA today yielded yummy pink bedding and a rolling clothes rack that is giving me nightmarish flashbacks to my summer at LOFT. I have used more spanish today than I ever have in my life, mostly because I have to keep repeating myself so people understand me (what do you mean you don’t understand my charming grunting and pointing??).
I share the top floor apartment with 11 other girls, from all over the country. We have a wrap around balcony with gorgeous views of the city and the sunset. I encountered a bike trail on our walk today that allegedly wraps around the entire city – a theory I will test on my run tomorrow. More pictures to come once I catch up on sleep!
