Until yesterday, I hadn’t really had much of a chance to tour a lot of Madrid. I’d been mostly hunting for an apartment (post to come!) and I just so happen to be doing so when EVERYONE else in Madrid is doing the same. However, I definitely got to see some of Madrid’s incredible sights, which are featured here. I tried to visit the palace today but it just so happened to be closed for a state event! This is rare but that’s just my luck. Also, now that I’ve made some friends it’s a lot easier to get photos of myself now at the monuments! It’s hard to get a selfie with a building that’s hundreds of feet (or meters, I guess) high.
Madrid is full of STUNNING architecture. I’m taking photos of buildings on every street I walk down. I end up with a camera roll of similar looking photos, but they’re all so beautiful. Today we also went to the Museo del Prado during their free afternoon hours, though photography is banned there. We didn’t even finish looking at all the levels before they had to close! The museum isn’t going anywhere though, so I’ll definitely be back to look at the beautiful paintings and sculptures. I feel so lucky to be living in a city full of so much culture and art. I’ve made a schedule of all the times the museums are free so I can hit them all up before I start going to work.
