The Ordinary Becoming Extraordinary

Greetings Readers!


I leave for Madrid in two days and wanted to share a bit of my experience before I depart on this wonderful adventure.  I am pretty much all packed and ready to go and as much as I’d love to be able to verbally describe my suitcase and such in an interesting manner, I think I am just going to have to show you what I have seen these past couple of days of preparation.  I hope my pictures will be able to convey the sense of newness I felt this week: the old has become new; the mundane has become extraordinary—things have taken on entirely new meanings.

Some of her interests include photography, translating, singing, learning foreign languages, and cats--specifically red chubby ones. As the daughter of a Milanese mother, and New Yorker father, with a passion for Latin America, Sofia often finds herself lost in translation sipping on her favorite drink--yerba mate. She wants to spend her semester abroad in Madrid, Spain with her eyes wide open to live the experience to the full allowing you to take a step into her life. &iexcl;Ven a ver!</span></p>
