First week in Madrid

I have been in Madrid now for 3 weeks. The first week my mom was with me so she could see where I was going to live. We explored the city together and did a lot of sightseeing.

Calle Carmen

Beginning of the Gran Via



Weapon of Madrid


The first day we strolled around in the center to look for some stuff that I needed to buy for my room. We also found a huge Primark here in Madrid which is the biggest store I've ever seen.

Near my room there is a huge park, called Parque del Retiro and all the people from Madrid go there on Sunday. The park is 1,4 hectare with a nice little lake in the middle where you can rent a little boat.




Crystal Palace



Also close to my room is a really big train/subway station that connects a lot of trains in Madrid. Which is ideal for me since I have to go to school by train as well.

And then here are some other pictures I took during the week.
