Trip #6 to Madrid

So since I am going on vacation to Las Vegas tomorrow, I did nothing here in Madrid this trip.  All I did was lock my hotel room door and sleep and sleep and watch TV.  J  So, sorry, no pictures to post.

Trip #5 to Madrid

Today my flight attendant friend Kamaryn and I went to the Prado museum here in Madrid.  It was pretty cool.  Pictures weren’t allowed, but I always manage to smuggle a few no matter what.  So here are the pictures from my day…

Flight Cancelled--Stuck in Madrid

So today I had my first cancellation.  Something dented the side of the plane and now I'm stuck in Madrid.  Actually it's not so bad.  I worked for about 4 hours today--long enough to board the plane and then de-board the plane--and then we got back to the hotel around 3.  Instead of really doing anything today I went to the mall that's near by and got some Starbucks Mugs. 

We aren't supposed to go back until Wednesday so tomorrow we are going to the town of Toledo.  Here is a video I found on youtube that someone posted of Toledo...

Trip #3 to Madrid

Hola!  So today was my third layover in Madrid!  It was a wonderful 50 degree day and I feel for the first time today I actually got to experience more of Madrid.  I started off visiting the bullfighting ring.  I couldn't go inside (tours end at 1:30 and the season starts in March) but I did get lots of pictures of the outside.  After that I visited the Royal Palace.  It's free to go into the courtyard and to see one of the rooms.  So that's what I did.  Then after that I got some churrors from what my guide book said was the best place to get churros.  YUM.  I'm back to Madrid on Jan. 8th!  (Oh and click on the panoramic pictures to see them up close.)
