Well today was a busy day, a 4+ hour walk around the city to make up for all of the workouts that I am missing. Madrid can be a Hike! Today was the Gran Via’s birthday – 100 years old. It was crazy. Have you ever been walking in one direction with 1000 people and met about 2000 coming the other way and have the crowd fight to see which direction the mass of people would go in?? If so you understand one of my experiences today.
The park was very hot today – sunburned my neck on the morning walk. In general it was good. I would like to think that I would have accomplished more on this trip — but I will not discount that I had Jamon Flavored Pringles and some great sopa!
Street Dancers were great and of course the street musicians. I discussed America with a few people and realized what a bad opinion many have about America. I do not understand it but I think it is a matter of education — no not apology speeches!
It appears that my flight back may be corrupted by the volcano “erutpdsjfrjrfjrgh” well if so maybe I can go to Tunis or Florence when I wait for the Ash to clear.
