¡Vaya Madrid! is an English language blog which aims to provide information for international Madrileño residents who are beyond cheap eats and quiz nights. It’s for people who want to integrate with the local culture, not observe it from within an Irish bar. A couple of weeks ago I contributed a piece about recycling which was a great opportunity not only to contribute some ideas about what it’s like to live here but also to create some artwork. Probably the biggest perk of contributing however, has been meeting the creative team of writers. Team meetings involve a whole lot of banter and fun times!
