Finally arrived Madrid on Sunday evening. It´s a relieve that my good friend Sarah decided to come down to Sevilla to help me move to Madrid. I still remember when I packed my stuff in Malaysia, my mom warned me that I won´t have enough space in my luggage if I brought such a small one with me. I didn´t listen. And in Sevilla I had to buy another luggage in order to fit all my stuff; books as well as food (and not to mention my shopping stuff of course). My stuff probably weigh about 70kg or more.....gotta crack my head to find a way to ship them back to Malaysia first.
My first day to school did not go too well, coz I was late for half an hour! Was used to being in a small city for the past 18 wks, that I underestimated the time required to get to the school by Metro (it´s not a valid excuse of course). Plusss.... (this one betul betul memalukan) I got on the wrong side of the train, and did not realise it until after 3 stops! That wasted another 15 minutes of my time...*sigh* Guess switching from an afternoon class in Sevilla to a morning one in Madrid is really tough. Was practically sleepwalking to the Metro station :P
Another not too happy incident was that my camera got stolen while I was in the Metro 2 days back. I was so depressed!!! I had quite a number of photos which I have not downloaded the week before :( All the while I had been very very very very careful with my stuff, and just that split second that I forgot my camera was on the outer pocket, there it goes! I did realise that my somebody was trying something, so I was paying a lot of attention to my waist pouch. Unfortunately I had forgotten to put my camera back into my inner pocket, and while I board the busy metro, somebody took advantage of that. Anyway, bought myself another camera. Not as good as the one I had before, but it´s better than nothing. Cost of cameras here are very expensive, so I bought myself just a basic one to take photos (no quiero viajar sin camara!). Will be taking a trip to Aranjuez, Toledo and Segovia this weekend and next Tuesday (it´s a public holiday!)
