Four Days in Madrid

Our hotel is in Puerto de Sol, smack dab in the middle of everything. The hotel is ok but not as nice as the one in Merida. It’s just not too our taste. Dark, the hallways are painted black, with red leather couches. The floor is of a material that makes it look very dirty and dingy. The room is a slightly fancier Ibis. But one thing it does have, is Chromecast. So, we can watch the streaming services we subscribe to back home. Which, if you’re spending a whole lot of time in the room is a good thing. You can listen to audio books for only so long.

Puerto del Sol and the surrounding area is packed. Day or night. Locals and tourists. People are lined up to take a picture of or a selfie with the bear eating broccoli that is in the square. And what’s there not to love about a city that has a statue of a bear eating broccolli?

And whenever in Madrid, if possible, I have to get a shot of one of my heroes. He stands with his compadre in Plaza de Espana.

The two most famous and popular museums in Madrid are the Prado and the Reina Sofia. We plan on visiting both but only make it to the Reina Sofia. Kay’s leg is getting worse. It is time to go home.
