Three Days Visit to Madrid, Spain

July 13, Sunday
We arrived in Madrid Barajas Airport @ 13:30 (2 hours flight from Paris). As soon as we arrived, (being a Filipino)I immediately grasped the signs around...
Europe 938 by you.

The place is full of churches (like every corner has one!). Aside from churches, there’s nothing much to see, except their plazas and museums. Maybe out of Madrid, like Santiago or Barcelona, we even thought of watching bull fight, but tickets were sold ahead of time (for at least a month)!

What I enjoyed most was their food…hmmm….
Think of “paella” (the authentic taste), churos dip in cocoa (chocolate)…
and the like!

The only thing I didn’t try is “creo diaz”… since there’s a story about this, I will never, never look for it next time…( I already told the story to some of you he-he-he).
