Again in Madrid, it's quite surprising to see so much retail in this area. Every street we turn on is full of clothing and shoe stores. To my despair, I have not seen one antique store! I'm hoping for more luck with antiquing in Portugal (or at least finding some hand crafted linens!).
We ate dinner at a great restaurant overlooking the Royal Palace and ended our night at Las Tapas Flamenco Live Show where we experienced a local favorite in Flamenco dancing. Unfortunately, we were not able to take decent pictures of the dancers but we tried to capture the intimate setting we were in. Not exactly what we were expecting..
Today, we are starting to feel a little weary from the biking and walking so we enjoyed a morning to sleep in and leisurely stroll down to the local market for an early lunch. What is nice about the market and their culture in general is most serve tapas so you can pick through several different types of food to create your meal. Afterwards, we walked down to the park to take a few more pictures and relax while we wait for our next adventure...the overnight train. Tomorrow, we anticipate the change of a new country and different culture and language.
