After a slow start I enjoyed a morning coffee and toast with fresh tomato sauce. A totally satisfying breakfast.
A walk in the city garden came first. We decided to tour the Prado for free between 5-7. We were not alone as the line stretched around the corner and down the Main Street. Lots of manicured routes. We circled the French garden; around some monuments, stopped for some chips and beer, visited an art exhibit in an abandoned huge green house, the crystal palace, and on and on.
Before the Prado we ducked into a little cafe that served up a most brilliant merluza steak. The best we have had since our 1978-79 life in Spain.
