My First Couple of Days in Madrid

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

It’s been a couple of days here in Madrid. It’s about 6:00am in the morning and I really should get back to bed. I’m incredibly jet lagged though, so that’s not really an option. The past couple of nights I’ve woken up at 4:30am and have had trouble falling back asleep. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m very much a night person and always wake up late, so obviously, I’ve been feeling a little off the past couple of days.

Anyways, the past couple of days have been interesting. I flew in on Wednesday, and was extremely tired. I only slept maybe an hour on the plane. Once I came in, I got lost for several hours looking for the hostel and then the Medialab. That was fun.

I’ve joined this group of three graphic designers / media artists. We’re dealing with a good bit of migration data in a project now known as Humanflows, and a good bit of data means a lot of Statistics fun.

Um…

Loopdee loo…

OK, I’m finding myself in a bit of a daze at the moment, so I think I’ll pause it here, and resume a coherent thought later…

Have a good weekend :)

On a completely unrelated note, I just had real hot chocolate for the first time. I mean, it was like melted chocolate with cream. Delicious.
