Diary: Day 1
by Nathan Moore y Chris Durante
Chris: I woke up at 730 AM, an hour and a half before the bus to the airport. I barley slept the night before but was up early the next morning anyway. When we boarded the bus, I said goodbye to my parents and the excitement set in. The plane ride to Chicago was only 2 hours long but I still slept for most of it. After a short layover in Ohare airport, we finally got onto the airbus to Madrid. I was amazed by the size of the airplane and I had a moment of clarity that this was really happening. I was actually going to Spain. The first steps out of Madrid Airport onto Spanish ground was an entirely new feeling. And the chocolate con churros was one of the best breakfasts I've ever hadThe chocolate was so rich and the churros were so sweet, it was an amazing combination. We saw all of the marketplaces and centers of Madrid and it was a totally different world than America.
