We arrived in Madrid in the afternoon following a draining 5 hour train trip. As we had loads to see here we got straight into seeing the sights. It didn't matter that it was getting late as everything gets going much later in Spain. Our first stop was Museo de Prada which was great. Again another museum full of materpieces by amazing artists that are just great to see. Our hotel was in a perfect location again so ...
