I have landed in Madrid :-)
The flight over was great. I sat for three and a half hours reading Adrian Mole - The Wilderness Years! I used to love these books so when I saw this in the bookstore the other day I knew it would serve me well for the flight.
Madrid is fantastic! I'm loving the buildings and the people :-) After arriving at my hotel (very nice by the way), I took an evening walk up Gran Via and then down to Puerta del Sol, on to Plaza Mayor and then back to the hotel as it was 10pm by then.
I need to get up around 8am in the morning as I'm meeting my friend Ciry at 9am for breakfast then we're going to the Expo :-)
By the way, the weather here is great for running!
