Reason number six why studying in Madrid rocks? Sometimes your classes don’t start until 3:30 in the afternoon.
This leaves just the right amount of time for exploring part of the city. So today, some friends from school and I went to the Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Mayor before our afternoon classes. These are two of the busiest and most well known plazas right in the centre of Madrid. Both are huge squares surrounded by beautiful architecture that holds events, shops, restaurants, and apparently Disney characters.
Take a look:
Having a picnic for lunch at Retiro Park.
Dinner every night just keeps getting better! We ate the most tender white fish my taste buds have ever encountered, with potatoes, more fresh bread, of course, and pasta con verduras (vegetables) in a creme sauce.
