Flag of Spain and Canary Islands  , Madrid,
Saturday, November 29, 2008

I spent 2 weeks in Madrid last year about the same time, and I had no intention of coming here again on this trip, so it's a nice wee surprise to see this great city again.  My friend Emma from back home is living here and she's very kindly let me crash with her. 

It's very cold here, Madrid is infamous for being too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.  This is especially a problem for me because I don't have a coat.  I feel many layers are the way forward.

I had a great few days in Madrid.  Didn't really do much of the tourist stuff because I seen all that last year, but I did go to the Prado again.  We drank a lot too, and one night in a bar beside Emmas apartment we were the only customers.  The manager happened sit and get drunk with us, and he took a little like to me.  So much so in fact that he invited me to dinner at his house the next night.  Emma wasn't too happy, especially considering he'd bought me a few drinks too, and not her.  Unfortunately I had plans the next night and couldn't go, but it's nice to know I've still got it! ;-)
