... br> After lunch I walked to CaixaForum Madrid to see the vertical garden which has been established on the side wall of what looks like an apartment block. It's quite impressive. In order to maintain the botanical theme, I then went to the Royal Botanical Garden.

This one was much larger and mor elaborate than the last but just as darn slow! Lots of still participants waiting for the "floats" to change people in and out. Tomorrow we have another day exploring Madrid before Sheridan heads back to London around ...
