Americans in Madrid

Madrid is an awesome city. It’s the capital of Spain and literally has everything you could want (including Taco Bell and Starbucks). Our class took a trip down to Madrid for a few days and I decided to stay a couple of extra days. I met so many other Americans those first couple of days that I decided to make a photo essay about Americans to see what they enjoyed the most. I wanted to be able to find new things to do for myself as well as make a small guide of what to do if any other Americans that read this make the trip to Madrid.

Sarah from Edmonds, Washington goes to Chapman College in California. Her favorite part of Madrid was the nightlife and meeting new people (Go Dawgs).
Elder Newman and Elder Iñesta are just beginning their mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their favorite place was the La iglesia de Jesuscristo de los Santos de los  ultimos días-Madrid (the largest Mormon Church in Madrid).

John and Alec are both from New York and they agreed that Retiro park was their favorite part of Madrid. I think that I would have to agree with them on that.

Kym, PJ, and Grace are all studying abroad from Boise State University. They are all big soccer fans and Kym and PJ (the ones with the scarves) went to El Clásico (the biggest soccer game of the year in Spain between Real Madrid and Barcelona). Grace actually went to high school with me in Yakima, while Pj is from Idaho, and Kym is from Alaska.
Marsha and Alexis are from UT Austin and are studying abroad in Madrid. They both have really enjoyed Madrid so far and really recommend the food, specifically El buo tavernas la buha.
