That’s how long the flight from her hometown Toulouse in France to Madrid took. “Here we can finally really live again and recharge our batteries, it’s heavenly,” says the 23-year-old in a bar in the Chamberí district of Madrid with a big smile and shining eyes before she takes another sip of beer.
