The perfect wrong turn. Wondering around the narrow streets of a Beijing Hutong lead us through old alleys filled with parked bicycles, down tiny streets with bustling markets and past locals socializing with each other at outdoor cafes. Passing an intersection with a small outdoor market and not knowing where we were, we took a spontaneous left turn up a small road. After rounding a small curve in the road, we happened upon this peaceful oasis in the middle of Beijing.

Life in Madrid

I started work last week, teaching 5 and 6 year olds! So cute but so fucking bad! To make matters worse it’s a private school in a very posh area so the kids are a tad more rude. But the love my co-workers and my hours so I can’t complain.

Leaving the Caribbean and moving to Madrid was a great idea! 

Was looking at teaching contracts in China but after reading how bad their air pollution is I am glad I backed out of that.

SID, I called you on Skype BECAUSE I stepped badly on my week old pet duck and it freaked the fuck out and had a hard time walking and is still a little off balance when it’s eating but I did some natural healing with my hands and now I am sitting on the floor with him wrapped in a yellow blanket. I can’t get a hold of Malaga since he’s busy at work so I sat here screaming and crying as he did some weird ass body movements. Yes, I decided to change his name from my Spanish Lover to Malaga. That is actually his nickname amongst his friends haha 

After all this emotional stress I am finally relaxed and on here. 

Let’s skype soon! I miss you beyond belief.
