Flying US Air can be a challenge. The challenge is surrounding both getting there and general quality. I only fly US Air to get to Madrid. Next year I have to find another airline, maybe united will have Madrid in their routes. But since I do this a few times a year I was prepared and ate my dinner in the club in Philadelphia. Now, the US Airs Envoy lounge in philadelphia is perhaps the best airline lounge that I have been in in the US.
It is also nice to come back to the same hotel, when you know the hotel it makes the trip so much better. I was hoping to see snow in Madrid but no snow yet. The city is quieter than usual, I suppose there are not as many tourist here. The air is crisp today in quality and color. The park was very quiet, some photography and some people walking. The ground was soft for a change, normally it would be harder and dry. But the cold weather and snow that they had recently no doubt made it more comfortable to my feet considering my new shoes!
Tonight I have the fun of having a dinner with friends around the holidays. Nothing is better. Tonights meal will be in a restaurant that serves uzbekestan (style) food.
Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so it does appear my dream of seeing snow in Madrid is dashed. It is probably just as well as they are planting flowers around plaza Neptune it would be ashamed to see them covered in snow, but it would make a good picture.
From a snow perspective, it appears snow showers start when I land in Manchester NH. I am looking forward to it as my dog, Madeline (moo), is no doubt looking forward to it as well.
OK, time to get ready for dinner.
