... Madrid Museums and other sights of importance. So armed with hat, maps, and guidebooks, off we headed aiming for the Plaza Mayor. The city is crazy with lane ways and roads (calles) branching off almost randomly in every direction. It must be a nightmare driving in te city coz wandering on foot is challenging enough.

We met Diana's friend Maria Lousa (marr-e-a-Lu-sar) (Spanish version of Melissa) and went to Primark, a massive shop on the other side of Madrid. It was basically Target but super, super cheap!
