Last night we came back from Madrid after taking Noken N5. We're still a little tired but we achieved our goal finally ^__^ So we can say: MISSION COMPLETED *throw confetti* though we have to wait till middle February for the results.
After all the stress we had the last days, everything went so smoothly since Saturday. We took the AVE to go to Madrid on Saturday night (it was a surprise to discover the tickets we bought with a great web discount were in a preferent wagon XDD). We arrived to Atocha station very nervous and tired, but fortunately the hostel was very near to the train station, about 10 minutes by foot, so we headed to there with our friend anaswings
and her mother ^__^.
We managed to sleep a little though we were awaking continuosly due to the nerves and almost oversleep because the alarm didn't ring T^T But we awoke on time ^__^Û
We arrived at UAM with anaswings
and her mother about 8:30 but we had to split at the entrance since she was taking N4. We we arrived to the N5 building and our friends elanor_892
, her boyfriend and aiwatan
were already there.
The exam started a little late because we had to wait for some people that weren't still there and finally didn't arrive (we supposed it was due to the airports' chaos at the weekend).
Grammar was very difficult for us u___u, but the rest was affordable, specially listening that was surprisingly easy YAY!!
So the morning passed quickly, when we realized it, it was already 13:30 and the exam was over. More than 2 years studing for a little moment.
We said goodbye to our friends and took the train to Atocha station again, we were planning to have lunch at a Korean restaurant near Atocha, but when we arrived to the restaurant, we didn't like its looks. We know you can't be guided with appearences but a restaurant with mirrored windows and the front door closed despite it was open, don't give us good vibrations ^__^Û We ended up eating at station's Burger King XDDD (Rosa: it was about 8 years since my last burger in a fast food restaurant) because everything was full due to the rain outside so we couldn't investigate more places.
After having lunch we were planning to visit the Prado Museum. Sundays afternoon it's free, but the queue was awesomely large, when we saw it, we thought we'll have to wait around 2 hours to enter the museum, so as it was starting to rain again and our train back left at 20:00, we decided to come back to to station and spend the time there. We were watching the stores at the station and the turtles in the tropical garden inside it. It's a very rare thing to find a tropical garden inside a train station XDDD It's placed at the ancient station, and it's awesome. In fact, many people go there for a walk though they don't have to take a train.
Click for bigger turtles XDD
Finally we arrived home safely and it was raining like hell @___@ The rain was pursuing us ;___; but we could relax at last and let Coco to spoil us ^___^
Thank you all again for your sweet comments, it helped us a lot!!
