One day is definitely not enough time to get a feel for a city, but here is what I saw. I hit a traffic jam at one am coming in from the airport, which was a first for me! The "ladies of the night" might as well be naked for all their outfits cover. The people begging are the most aggressive I have seen anywhere, I was actually physically grabbed twice. That hasn't happened anywhere else. I think it was quite a shock for my mom who is used to the friendly chatty homeless people in the west end of Vancouver. I guess you do come to Europe for a new experience though!
I found it funny that all the Italian I had learned last fall when I spent a month in Itlaly went completely out the window coming from Spain. Not that I spoke much Spanish in Spain, but small things like please and thank you, and asking directions my brain was at a loss in Italy. Oh well, we are only here for a day really, then on to Prague!
