Greetings from Madrid

Hello from the capital of Spain, Madrid. Here the weather doesn't look like winter yet. The air is warm and most of the days are sunny, with some rainy days in between.
I've stayed here from October until now January 2023, and I'm having a great time spending Christmas with my family. Also, Christmas lights are all over Madrid, as you can see from the main picture. The city is filled with tourists from all over the world and Spaniards from different parts of the country.
The restaurants, bars, and shops receive many guests every day and the atmosphere is filled with excitement and happiness.

During my practical training here as a nursing student, I’ve been in La Paz Hospital, which is located in the business area towards the north of Madrid. Here I was 7 weeks at the pneumology ward and then rotated to a healthcare center towards the south of Madrid. Working as a nurse in Spain has given me the opportunity to amplify my competencies since Spanish nurses are able to do more medical care compared with Finland. The downside part is that the working load is higher since there are more patients to take care of.

After the training ended the last 20th of December, I’ve been visiting different places in Madrid. This is La Almudena Cathedral, located very close to Puerta del Sol, the center of Madrid. The cathedral has high ceilings and a beautiful and peaceful ambiance. The decorations of catholic churches are more ornamental than Lutheran churches.

Have a wonderful 2023!
