every night, rather every morning, since we arrived sunday afternoon, we lie in bed and stare into the darkness trying to sleep. sleep finally happens around, say, 2:30 to 3 in the morning. then we have to get up by, say, 6:30 to 7 and start getting ready for work. hasn't happened. so we're latelatelate for work. wanna bet it's gonna happen again tomorrow morning? so here we are, blogging again. and catching up on american idol. we've missed a lot! well, who wants to sit inside and watch TV when there's all this to see outside (even if it's seven degrees)... oops, sorry, just reminiscing about the three weeks we spent in europe. some random shots in madrid...

fountains, fountains everywhere:
puerta de alcalá, the gateway to madrid:
tweety bird blocking my view of plaza mayor (shoo!):
the spectacular view during our 20-minute cable-car ride:
a lush garden inside atocha railway station:
zara home! (mr. huang, when are you bringing this in?):
