One last night at our riad in Marrakech, and we had a lovely dinner, I thought it was the best food in Morocco.
We had a early start to get to our airport, only to find out that our flight had been delayed by two hours due to VOLCANIC ASH!!!
We arrived in Madrid and caught the train to our flat. We had a walk around and had tapas and raciones, and the went home to bed.
The next day we had a walking tour from the Playa Major, around the old town ending up at the old palace. I thought the walking tour was okay but the guide was hard to understand.
Dad took me to Bernabau stadium the home of REAL MADRID!! I got to see the pitch and I went into the soccer store.
After that we did our washing, then with our bags full of clothes went to Madrid market and I had tapas and a nice chocolate cake.
We got up early and went to the Prado Museum, I liked the audio guide because it had interesting info on it. I didn't like that it took so much time to go around and I got quite bored. I liked some of the mythological paintings. When we went to Reine Sophia museum Dad was very disappointed because it was closed (Mondays), so we went to a Science museum which was good, but small and everything was in Spanish only
We went to see Iron Man 2, in english, and I enjoyed it a lot, though I think that they cut a few parts out because they couldn't do the sub-title translation fast enough!
Next day we collected our car from Madrid and started driving north,
bye for now, Gaelan.
