Day one in Madrid!


We slept in a bit today after arriving at 2 am at our apartment in Madrid this morning. We got going around 10 am and walked over to a cafe for breakfast. We went to the royal botanical gardens, el parque Retiro(the largest park in Madrid), la plaza del Sol (where I met up with Shane!), la plaza de España, another garden, the royal palace, la plaza mayor for dinner, and then finally home. Our best guess for how much we walked today is between 6 and 12 miles. Whew! Tonight we´ll be taking it easy, resting up, and tomorrow we hit the best museum in town: El museo del Prado.

Here´s a picture of all of us today in front of the royal palace! (check my flickr for a full quality version: )

    Try not to lose too much weight with all the walking! Sounds like fun, though. Get SOME sleep!
