All of us plus all of our stuff ready to head into the Kalamazoo airport.
This pile looks deceptively small-- there were a bunch of things hiding behind that big suitcase in the front.
Josh sandwiched between two sleeping children on the flight over the Atlantic.
I was supposed to be sleeping across the aisle, but that didn't pan out.
At least Derek was comfy ;)
That's our hotel in the background. We have one of the rooms that's on the curve, and has 4 of those little balconies.
In one of Madrid's many plazas.
Derek enjoying the hydrotub.
The tub doubles as my washing machine, since I have yet to find a local laundry service.
The hotel service charges more to wash one pair of underwear than it would cost to buy a new pair.
Spain doesn't really do laundromats as we know them. I found one not too far away, but it would cost around $20 to do one load.
I've heard there are places that will charge by the kilo, which is a better deal. But I haven't seen one, so I've just been using the bathtub and draping clothes all over the room to dry.
Overall, today was a better day. We're pretty much adjusted sleep-wise, the kids got a break from us and vice-versa, but getting things accomplished to find a place & get settled still seems to be one step forward and 2 steps back.
Tomorrow the big goal is to get a bank account set up. Judging by where you go to obtain metro passes, I'm expecting to start the day in a butcher shop.
