Only 1 week left in Spain!

I can't believe that I've been in Spain for 3 1/2 weeks. The time has gone by so quickly and I'm really sad to be leaving in a week. I'm definitely going to save my pennies so I can come back. I've blogged about most of my weekend trips but hardly anything I've done in Spain so here are a few pictures of my adventures in Madrid!
Our dormitory
The Senate building
The Constitutional Court
Chocolate Churros= YUMMY!
The Campus Bar-
I love these bags. I bought 3 because they are so much cheaper here than in the States.

Day Trip to Toldeo

Last week, we took a day trip to Toledo, Spain. It was a really neat city except it was horribly hot and the hills were miserable to walk up. Other than that, it was fun times!
Do you see how red my face is? That's because it felt like the inside of an oven in Toldeo

I tried a sardine. It was disgusting. NEVER AGAIN!

The Vatican and more of Rome...

Day 2 of Rome was spent touring the Vatican. We did a guided tour which was worth the price because our tour guide was able to tell us everything there is to know about the Vatican. It was such a cool experience!
