Madrid Spain

Madrid is a hot and vibrant city. We had a slow start – none of us had been here before.

I’m really tired, but determined to do a post tonight, so it is bullet points:

Old Madrid – Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real (pic is of palace)
Prado Museum – Andy actually requested we visit an art museum because he thought it would be cooler inside than outside.
Basilica de San Miguel and Mercado de San Miguel
Museo de Jamon
McDonald’s – finally ice with our soda (France doesn’t do ice)

We walked lots and lots, but I didn’t wear my pedometer.

We had a great evening – stopped at two different restaurants/cafes for tapas, cerveza, sangria, cava and paella. The city really comes alive at night, but I was too tired to stay up late.
