Adios, Madrid... Hello, London!

We're at the Madrid Airport, with 10 minutes left on our account at the Internet Cafe.

We had a really great time in Madrid over the past 3 days. We went to the three major museums: The Prado, The Reina Sofia, and the Tyssen. We also walked through the Retiro Park, The Plaza Mayor and the Plaza Del Sol, and a zillion other plazas, too numerous to mention :)

We had a late check-out at 2:00 this afternoon, then went down to the lobby to meet up with Barb, Henry, Kathy and Adrianne, who took the train from Granada to Madrid this morning. We had a nice time catching up with them before we had to take a cab to the airport. It sounds like they all had a really nice time in Granada.

More Trina!

We really loved Madrid. The weather was perfect, and the city was beautiful.

Onward to London! (and rain....) :(

I've been taking loads of photos (perhaps about 400 so far) which is nothing compared to my Dad, who apparently took more than 350 photos in the Alhambra alone!) Bet you all can't wait until that slideshow!

Hope everyone is doing well, and we'll touch base again in London, Baby.

oops - almost forgot a really funny story:

On our way to breakfast, we walked past a group of ladies wearing matching shirts. The shirts all said, "No Dick is as hard as my life!" on the back. They were in town to celebrate one of the ladies' 50th birthday. I couldn't resist, and asked them to take a picture with "my Dick".

"No Dick is as hard as my life!"
