Hola amigos y familia. Estoy en Madrid hasta miercoles.
OK enough of that, my Spanish isn't good enough to do an entire posting. That however is why I finally signed up for a Spanish course. From July until September every Monday evening I will be back in school trying to become somewhat fluent, we'll see how it goes.
The last time I was in Madrid I didn't have any time to see the city so I decided this time I would come in on Sunday morning and go see the city. My first stop was the Prado Museum on Sunday afternoon, spent most of the afternoon wandering about checking out all the pretty pictures on the wall. They had a lot of work from El Greco and Goya.
I am trying hard to adjust to the eating habits here, restaurants don't open until 8:30 or 9:00 for dinner. Late afternoon everybody has tapas and very late dinners. On the weekends that's fine but when I have to get up for work in the morning I don't want to be sitting down to eat at 10 PM.
Today for lunch is Paella if I can find a place that will make it for 1, you usually need at least 2 people.
