First week in Madrid

There is a super interesting contrast in Madrid between old architecture and new.  The combination makes it a very beautiful and unique place to walk around.
It's so beautiful to look up when walking around... maybe that's why I get lost so often... then again I kind of like it when I get lost for a bit.
Near Puerta de Sol, appropriate, no?

As a wonderful graduation present, I went to Belize with my Mom earlier this month.  All the good photos are at  But, here are some of my favorites:

 View from our lunch spot on Ambergris Caye
 Flying from Ambergris to the mainland
Jesus bird
Greedy spider monkey came on our boat and sucked down 3 bananas before hoping to the next boat for more.
 Bats on the tree trunk, very camouflaged, no? 
He looks stoned... ha ha ha, get it?
 Mayan ruins at Lamanai
View down from the top
 The Jaguar temple called that because the front looks like the face of a jaguar.
