I'm in Madrid, celebrating my first new years away from home, away from family. And it feels fantastic. It's freezing out, but I'm with classmates and friends, and we're about to head out to Puerta del Sol to wait for the countdown. Got a huge cluster of grapes ready, with a quick bite and beers to drink as we wait in the cold. Going to be a fun night.
I feel in two places, but at home in each. Wishing all the best for the new year to my friends, old and new, in Canada and Spain. Optimism and hope, only the best things in 2014.
