Ancient wisdom and modern inspiration
For my final blog post, I thought it would be fun to share with you all the top 10 most important things I have learned about life while living in Madrid, Spain. No matter what language you speak, everyone understands a smile. I remember one time I was on the metro, and I gave up my seat for an elderly man. He started talking to me about what a rough day he had had, and although I could not understand everything he said, his smile told me he was thankful to be able to sit down. And when I had trouble talking or understanding my Spanish friends, I would smile and laugh and they would laugh with me. Then they would repeat what they said or use hand motions to get their message across, and some way or another we would continue talking. But everyone understands a smile!
