Madrid, Day 1

Madrid, a six hour time difference to absorb over our two day stay. After landing early on Saturday we taxied to our Airbnb. After an introduction to a city map and metro map we mapped for less than two hours. Our first Metro ride took us to Picasso, Dali and other greats.

Before the Reina Sophie museum we tasted tapas at a large food market stuffed with food, beer and wine vendors. The place was so packed with people, nudging and squeezing between folks became an art and a social event. Highlights included croquettes, seafood and ham, a prosciutto sandwich, and a fresh mozzarella and arugula bruschetta.
