We landed on Madrid,Spain at 17:05. It was quite long trip as we fly from Nagoya which is 2 hours away from my town by train. Then transit at Beijing,Abu Dhabi,Rome and Madrid. Totally 28 hours later we landed on Madrid,our first destination. On this trip,I have my nice travel companion Ayano who starts traveling abroad since 5 months old with me,yes my daughter. 

We took a bus from Barajas airport to the town. The bus ticket is 5 euro each. We were not sure where is the bus stop also can't understand Spanish. I always checked my google map in my hand. It helped me very well,we arrived at the center of city in 2 hours after landed because took time for money exchange at the airport. Also o find our hostal was hard.

I've checked the same street several times but missed looking the sign on a wall,totally it was very easy as it center of center. After check in a hostal,we took quick shower then went to discover the city.

In Spain,of course I'd like to enjoy "Tapas"! I don't know much about Spain but know about Tapas! Where can we get local tapas bar... again we walk around. A pizza shop caught my eyes,well we need to make happy our belly first. We had 2 slice of pizza then ate at Sol. As we lost before check in a hostal,it wasn't difficult to find local bars. I love to see the typical local bar,they has nice tile art on the face of shops or inside. It's so unique! 

The bar we entered had same unique tile art. We ordered one drink each. Then waiter brought us spicy salami sausage and small hard dry biscuits.

Love the picture
...uhh,it's not something I imagine "tapas" though,OK we can try it other places.  There are 4 ladies from Germany in the bar. I guess they stayed the bar a couple hours because looks like having much fun and cheerful. We talk and tost together,after they knew that we from Japan some of them are doing bow like Japanese does also they loves Japanese royal family. I didn't talk much about Japanese Royal family with foreigners until now,so it was something fresh for me maybe because they are older than me.

The waiter,Daniel was easy going guy as well. I like talking with people comical way especially met people at like this bar. The person from Osaka,like me have the same camical mind. I already being like this town very much.

Too much long trip have forget me a "jet-lag". We back hostal then fell asleep soon.
