Originally, doing touristy things felt cliche. Now I appreciate it. I know more than I thought I would about the history of Madrid. My new goal is to do touristy activities without acting like a complete tourist. I'm finding the balance of taking pictures and just letting the moment happen. After drinks with some friends of my friend, I stumbled upon a shop and ended up buying a pin that says "Aqui and Ahora" (here and now).
That's my goal right now, to be here in Madrid. I'm humbled by how much I need to learn, excited by how much I have yet to do, and thankful for the way that my concept of home has expanded.
