All most home!

I am typing this in Atlanta. On Friday we headed over to the museums. The Sofia was more modern while the Prada was very old (most paintings from 1600 - 1890's). Madrid was good because we had translators for most of the three days. Friday night Javi walked us around town for tapas.

In reflecting on the trip I am not sure of favorites. People ask if you like Barcelona or Madrid more, but they are so different I don't think you can compare. Personaly I like them both for very different reasons. Every where we went the food was fantastic, but there is a time for everything as I mentioned before.

Very glad to be home soon and see the boys!

We have a lot of pictures which Troy will post to our website.

Madrid

overcast 74 °F

Had a chance to log in and thought I would send a quick note before breakfast. The last two day's have been spent walking around Madrid. Troy's friend JP spent time with us and Brian and Erin, the couple from LA. He showed us around town and took us to a couple different restaurants to have authentic Madridian food. Very good and no struggle with the language!!

Today we are off to visit the Prado and the Reina Sofia art museums.

Made it to Madrid

sunny 72 °F

Well we made it to Madrid, however, you have to go to the business center to use the internet, unless we want to pay 17 dollars a day. So this will probably be my last blog entry until we get home.

Heading out to dinner with JP tonight and then the Prado museum tomorrow. We will see what is in store for Friday.

If I get a chance I will let you know what we are up to if nothing else we can always post pictures.
