... visited the Mercado San Martin one evening. The market is not traditional at all, it is actually more of a tapas (Spanish appetizers) market. One gets to walk around and just buy samples of the most traditional flavors of Spain. Amelie needed to have Paella, and we had it several times, but that was her biggest request. Oliver was all about the seafood. And Ian and Elyse were just hungry! So, we bought fried octopus tentacles, fried ...

... you have to know the maker and the history.

Probably the most impressive part of the palace to me was the Royal Chapel. It had more gold than almost any other church/chapel I've seen, which is saying something. It was a Baroque-style chapel almost entirely either black or gold. I walked in and just said "wow."

We took the kids to Ana's in the evening for a BBQ as Pato & Paco went to a wedding. Pato looked absolutely wonderful and the piece-de-resistance of her outfit was the fascinette she wore (the one her mam wore ...

On Wednesday, we had the day off from classes to celebrate the Festival of San Isidro, Madrid's patron saint. There were supposed to be all sorts of events going on, but we could only find an American-style carnival in the southern part of town, which wasn't really all that interesting.
