Reflecting on Madrid

IMG_1036

Madrid is a large city, and we only saw a little slice of it, which was probably typical of the rest of the city.  Lots to see and do. The people are delightful and willing to help when asked, and we had blue skies every day.  The only negative I would note is the litter 🙁

The Spaniards LOVE their ham (jambon).  It’s the most common sandwich, and there are many stores that sell just ham and sausages.

IMG_1038The Spanish seem to exercise their right to peaceful protest often. We saw 3 different protests – all very organized.  This one was against some changes (firings?) at the Coca Cola plant.

Ten delightful days into our adventure and we’re off  to Malta, and some musings about low cost air carriers. Laura
