Hate the books, love the light. Another great power walk, culminating in trying on some trainers. Next step, buying the trainers. We also saw around 200 French students, which isn’t an unusual sight in Madrid, but definitely curious out in our neighbourhood. Slightly expecting school to be overrun with French teenagers tomorrow, but I haven’t heard anything. Thanks to our school’s decoration coordinator (presumed to be his official title), we had tons of decorations in celebration of World Book Day – a second hand book sale, a competition to design a front cover for “The Alchemist”, millions of books stapled to the side of the school. I have never seen such a well decorated school!
