We talk nearly everyday, but FaceTime or WeChat is never the same as being in person. I've been waiting for this for a long time. Just lots of stuff happening here, that I'm finding it hard to share with other people. But my mom understands. My mom always understands. Arriving Sunday afternoon, I got to El Prat early. If you want to see humanity at its best, see the arrivals gate of any major airport. Pure joy is what it is. As soon as she saw me, mi mama started crying all the way over. But she's here, and I can finally show her my home for the past 8 months, this life I've built for myself here. And it's great, because she's the only person who truly feels the excitement I feel, can see the happiness I'm experiencing here. And please, coming from Toronto, this weather and sun is paradise.
A first day of visiting IESE, and doing a quick walk around of Barcelona. Cool. In need of a good night's sleep - tomorrow's going to be a great day. Brunch in the morning, a stroll through Passeig de Gracia ... and then back to El Prat to catch a flight to Madrid. Let's go!!
