The capital and New York City of Spain, we arrived around 730pm, took a series of subways to he place named Sol, the center of the city. In total we walked Madrid and its great, wideopen plazas for four hours before arriving here at the bustop. Our bus departs at 1am and we travel for about five hours to the northeast. So far we have been traveling for thirty-plus hours straight.
I am well good and tired, having to catch some rest on the trip to Pamplona. Mateo and I did find a cafe that sold small glasses of beer and solid sandwiches of jamon (HAMon) for 1C (euro) each. I also got a plate of jamon and melon – all this did total 16.90C, but good luck shown and we received a 10C tip for change.
Tonight rained for the last few hours of sunlight, but the sun does not set in parts of Spain until 10pm. Mateo tells me the late sunlight is a result of Spain´s western most location in its timezone. Tonight´s rain brought a good lot of black Africans selling knock-off Burberry umbrellas to touristas. As for me, I liked the rain – it gets you clean from today´s sweat and stagnation.
