Flag of Spain  , Madrid,
Thursday, May 9, 2013

We had hoped to arrange a late checkout at 5pm since our flight tonight is not until 11pm, but unfortunately someone else had booked the room for today so we had to leave by noon. We left our backpacks at the hostel to collect later and set out to explore Madrid. It's a city neither of us has been to before. We spent a pleasant few hours wandering about between the plazas and parques, occasionally stopping to take photographs, sample tapas or enjoy a cold drink in the warm Spanish afternoon.

I obviously didn't pay enough attention to the sun, as I ended up a little more lobster-coloured than I wanted. I liked Madrid, a pleasant place to spend a day with lots of open spaces and little corners to explore. We are going to the airport now to catch our flight. 20 hours to Lima. Ugh...
