... the pretty streets. It's busy here but still very beautiful, especially in the old areas. I met up with Melissa (Aussie) at 5.30pm to have a look at the inside of the Royal Palace as its free from 6-8pm. When we got there the line was about 50m long and not moving!

As it happened, the 3rd floor was a disappointment - in particular a show by a Dutch contemporary artist whose work was rather disturbing. We did, however, get to see the museum's main work - Picasso's Guernica (on the second floor).....although I can't say I'm a great fan of the piece.
By 8pm we were all a little tired, and we took the Metro back to the flat. Liz and ...
