... They told us it was the biggest European palace second to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg in Russia. So cool.
We ate lunch and then we decided to split up. The girls and I went to the pool, Braydon and Jenni went on the tour of the stadium and Barb was the smart one and stayed at the hotel and took a nap.
Tonight we are going to dinner and waiting for the sun to go down to see Plaza Mayor at night.
We have a 5 hr flight to Minneapolis and the a 55 min flight to Des Moines. We paid for upgrade seating with more leg room......best $$$ I have spent. We had lots f eg room and each seat had a flip-up tv monitor with free movies or tv, which really made the 5 hr flight go by quickly.
Got in Des Moines at 11:00 pm and we were home about midnight.
What a great adventure this has been.
