We Are Official Spanish Residents
Today we made the trip (two hours round trip by subway) from the Pavones metro station near our apartment to a government building (near the Aluche metro station) where we picked up our Permiso de Residencia, which officially gives us Spanish residency. It's a restricted residency; it does not allow us to work (at least not for money!) and lasts only one year (after which time we have to renew the cards).
We're excited to have these cards because now we can have free entrance (for Senior citizen residents) to the wonderful Madrid museums!
