Madrid #3

March 3rd, 2005 at 4:40 pm

Today met as usual in the library and worked on some questions about yesterday's bus tour. After finishing this, we set out for the Metro to begin our walking tour of Madrid. We started at the Palacio Real and then walked down the Calle Mayor through the Plaza Mayor, the Plaza de la Villa, the Puerta del Sol, and the Paseo del Prado. Along the way we saw the Kilómetro cero (the center of Spain from which distances are measured), the Congreso de los Diputados, where the representatives in Spain's democracy meet, the Museo del Prado, the Biblioteca Nacional, and many other interesting sights.

Tomorrow we are planning on touring the Museo del Prado, sure to be a treat! Make sure you check out the photos. Also, if you want me (or the other students) to go into more detail about our trip, please post in the Spanish Exchange Forum.
