How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I attended events run and largely consumed my Madrileños. For example, on Sundays, I went to Madrid's biggest thrift market, El Rastro, and interacted with the vendors and tried to speak with them and ask them questions about what they sold. Also, I interacted with my taxi drivers, waiters, etc. and asked for recommendations on their favorite parts of Madrid.

what was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class abroad was my modern art and architecture in Spain class. It is great to learn about a cultural aspect of the city that you are studying in. We also got to have some hands-on learning and go to famous museums in Madrid to study the art in person which was an amazing experience.
