Tour Around the City

Hola Todos!

Tuesday after class, we had our first group outing – a walking tour around Madrid! The places we visited included, the Plaza Mayor, the Mercado de San Miguel, the oldest restaurant in the world – the Botin Restaurant -, and the Palacio Real. We also visited a street where the tradition goes that once a couple gets married, they have to walk through the street or they will not stay married…Spanish people are very superstitious. It was a very interesting tour, and the roomies hung out afterward, which is when I got some churros (btw, they are not normally sweet here, but with a little sugar they were awesome)!

Hasta luego!
