    Day 1. Madrid

    September 9, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Our trip started with a tapas meal.
    6 different restaurants.
    We started with anchovies which I never thought I liked...turns out I was wrong. 😁
    We ended with a shot of sweet wine that was served in the end of an icecream cone dipped in chocolate and that becomes the small shot glass! The entire evening was wonderful. Alex was our guide and was really good at explaining the food and it's significance.
    Up early tomorrow to meet the rest of our tour group!
    Great first day in Madrid!

    Madrid - last bit

    September 5, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    After the conference I went to the Prado museum, during the free two hours before it closes. There was a bit of a line...
    Luckily they let us in quickly, as fast as they could x-ray our bags and metal-detect us. It was like the airport! They are serious about their no-photos policy here too!

    Got to see lots of Picassos, a Rembrandt, and a replica Mona Lisa painted by one of Leonardo's students while the original was being painted. So I'll know what I should be able to see when I'm standing behind a huge crowd at the Louvre.

    Last night back in the hostel, then off at 9am though almost deserted streets (I guess being up all night means sleeping in) onto a train going up to 300km/h through the Spanish countryside (mostly very dry) to Barcelona!
