Royal Palace. Madrid, Spain.
I woke up at 8:30, my first night of decent sleep since embarking on the trip! Had a bit of a sore throat which didn't make me a happy camper... We got ready, did our laundry (which we had to pretend to be staying in the hostel which was on the first floor to use their laundry... It took almost an hour and a half!) Aaron and I were taking shifts watching the laundry while the other was checking e-mail. We finally were ready to set out around noon and we went to see the royal palace, it was pretty cool, beautiful rooms and wicked armory. Then we went back to retiro which we enjoyed so much the night before and we checked out the crystal palace and royal palace. Walked around it (it's pretty huge) and got some "Crokas"- which is like pizza bread? We were both pretty tired so we went back to he room, I napped while Aaron walked around some. I woke up at around 9, got ready and went out, ate dinner, walked around the gay pride festival? it was actually pretty cool, very rave like, lots of booze, techno music and people dancing. Aaron and I looked for a bar but couldn't really find anything, the city seemed pretty shut down for the festival, so we went back to the room and called it a night at around 12:30a
