Madrid: Day 1

So we are now in Madrid. Greg keeps reminding me that this is the city where I will find out my LSAT score. I don't know how I feel about that, but so far Madrid has been great.

Our flight was supposed to leave at 6:45 this morning, but it didn't really end up leaving till about an hour later. Of course, that meant we woke up around 4:30 to get there on time. Luckily, we were both able to get some sleep on the flight and our hotel let us check in right when we arrived, so we got a nap too.

This hotel is probably the best one we've stayed in yet. Not only is there a shower, a toilet, and one bed instead of two, but we are seriously right next to the train station. We don't really even have to go outside between the two because there's a parking garage. It's great.

So when we were done napping today, we went to Puerta del Sol, which is kind of like the city center. It's a really nice area.

We eventually made our way to Plaza Mayor which is a square where some of the Spanish Inquisition took place. Now, it just has nice cafes and little shops all around.

We had a light dinner at a little cafe and then headed back to the hotel to catch up on email and of course blogging. So there you go, we're all caught up! :)
