My boyfriend has wanted a ham leg in his apartment since we moved to Spain. They’re all over the place here and I see Spaniards buying them every single day at the grocery store. Since him and Mikey just moved into a new two-bedroom apartment, they decided it was time to make the investment. Today, after watching a few educational videos, Mikey undertook the challenge of buying a ham leg & stand and getting the whole thing setup. (Read: perfect procrastination strategy). Hope the photos don’t make your mouths water too much, since Spanish Jamón is actually illegal in the US!
January is a pretty quiet month in Madrid. Students here are studying for exams, making their way back and forth between the gym, grocery store, library, their apartment and that’s about it. My first exam, Human Resources, was on Wednesday and it was much easier than expected… so that’s a good sign. Unfortunately, I have six more to go: tomorrow, then Monday, Wednesday & Friday of next week, and Monday & Wednesday of the week after that. Since I’ve been somewhat preoccupied with studying (and procrastinating), here is a video my friend Kathryn shared with me that really captures the usual energy of Madrid. Enjoy, amores:)
