We're so thankful that no matter where God has placed us, He has provided us with friends. Last week we said goodbye to three friends in Madrid who taught in the same program with us. We met them at orientation, and throughout the year met up for dinners and lunches, travelled to Barcelona together, and celebrated Christmas together away from our families. We generally commiserated over some of the silliness at our jobs ("Speak in a British accent!" types of things), and laughed a whole lot. Our final meal together on this side of the world was appropriately paella and good Spanish wine. We will miss you Leah, Lina, and Joe! Safe travels to the land of unlimited AC and free refills. I hope we will all meet again!
