Today several of us estudiantes (students) decided to set out to find some American comida for lunch.  One of the less informed estudiantes claimed to know where a TGI Friday's was.....si, yo se, por que (Yes, I know, why) would we travel thousands of miles to go to a TGI Friday's for lunch?  Well, it's funny the things you will do when you haven't eaten a full meal in several days! 

To make an extremely long (5 hours worth of walking) story short, el estudiante quien (the student who) claimed to know where el restaurante was really had no idea so we ended up wandering around Madrid for 5 hours asking random policia (police), hotel employees, etc. where the Friday's was and receiving comletely different directions from each.  We ended up finding The Hard Rock Cafe in Plaza de Colon after the 5 hour escapade, so we decided to settle! 

The only positive thing that came from our adventure (along with blisters and a grouchy and extremely hungry Lindsey!) was that we got to see very random parts of Madrid that we most likely would not have seen otherwise.  Plus, I've learned to never leave my room without a Google Map of where it is that we're going!
