I took a walk around the neighborhood, scoped out a restaurant for dinner that the front desk had recommended, and snapped a few photographs. The weather is absolutely perfect, almost like springtime. Nancy and John (who came all the way from Seattle via Los Angeles and Paris, where they then transferred to a train) should be here shortly. I'm hoping we'll all sleep well tonight. Even though I didn't have any problem snoozing on either plane earlier, a normal night's sleep will be appreciated!
Here's a photo of the ceiling at the Madrid airport...as confusing as the rest of it!
