Madrid was busy, loud, modern, but really beautiful. I've never been to NYC, but in my mind I felt like that was what I would compare it to in some parts. The traffic and hustle and bustle was pretty much everywhere. There weren't many pictures taken of myself at my request...I really didn't want my greasy mug plastered all over everyone's facebook! ; )
We visited the grandiose Palacio Real
Made a stop at the Don Quixote and Sancho Panza statues
Shopped and walked for miles
Watched a flamenco show at the same place 'The Bachelorette' was just filmed!
Had dinner in an underground cave tapas restaurant
And then we called it a night with a ride on the metro to our hotel!
