April showers

April, le sigh, has been a month for staying indoors. It´s been a time of using the laundry rack instead of the line, opting for the quick route home instead of the scenic, and never leaving home without the trusty travel umbrella. Visits from friends, however, have made those cozy indoor hours pass rather quickly. We had visits from three friends this month–first Drue and Pablo, then Christina. While I don´t have photographic evidence of the former, here are some shots of the latter:

Romantic, eh?

Even more romantic!

Goodbye April, Goodbye waterworks!

Things have been very busy here; please excuse the month-in-a-nutsell photo post. Hopefully I´ll have time to update more frequently after May hectiness calms down.

      So insane! I have four classes left for my TEFL practice teaching on top of my 25-hour/week insti responsibilities. Plus the thesis is due…eeek!!

    I appreciate the photo evidence of my wonderful trip. Gracias por ser una anfitriona increíble! Os echo menos

    De nada, Christina! Que vuelvas a visitar pronto 😉

  4. Looks like you have a lot of awesome indoor options, though!
    I’m still waiting for the weather to improve so I can really explore NYC. I was lucky and made it indoors right before the thundershowers began today.

      Rain can definitely put a damper on travel plans, even with the desire to go outside and explore! You’re right though, we had a lot of great indoor options at our fingertips. Wishing you the same in New York City!!
