Destination Madrid 2007

Madrid, Spain. Saturday 8 to Sunday 9 September

After navigating the one way streets of Madrid, locating the hotel and dumping the car, we hit the sightseeing trail.

We lunched in Plaza Mayor and walked a little, interspersed with some serious (unrecorded) shopping.

Elisse had organised seats to the National Orchestra of Spain’s first concert of the season, in the old abattoirs, accompanied by out of synch fireworks. Great evening.

Our last day in Spain was a Sunday – day of rest. We found Plaza Mayor full of colourful groups bearing flag poles, dancing or just being there.

Hayden & Elisse took the bus back to Bareclona while Bruce & I had an adventure in Russia planned.
