Two Days in Madrid

We checked into our hotel about 1:30 PM and asked the desk clerk if she could recommend a nearby restaurant for a really nice meal. She could. And further she inquired “would you like for me to make the reservation for you”? We would. She made the reservation for 2 PM and gave us instructions on how to get there. Three blocks to your right, two blocks to your left, then three blocks to your right and on the corner is a lovely restaurant. And so it was! Several octopus’ gave their life for this lovely meal. And as you can see from some of the photos we had our own private dining room.

That afternoon we walked around for a while seeing sights not too far from our hotel. The next day we took the hop on hop off sightseeing bus to enjoy more of Madrid. The city is beautiful but more formal than lovely, sunny, cozy, and embracing Sevilla.
