* About a week’s time spent in Madrid. Museums, food and drinks (mostly wine). Long walks and a couple of day trips via train to Segovia and Toledo. Met with two old friends (last time I saw them was in Bogota back in 2006). Melissa was very excited to attend a soccer match between Real Madrid and Celta (and a few days later at a bar we watched Atletico Madrid and Liverpool). Still regret not spending more time at the convent where nuns make yummy marzipan treats (but we were lost and had a train to catch).
* Had a dream that giant killer clown robots were destroying the world. Our dictator in chief is pretty much the same…. (no offense to all the nice robots out there).
