Day 149: Madrid

September 10th, 2011

I have to say that I can sense that there is more to Madrid than meets the eye but that you need some time to find it and I couldn’t really do that unguided in the three days that I was there. Although I couldn’t meet with any local couchsurfers or friends, I did make the acquaintance of some fellow traveling couchsurfers and we looked at some of the typical Madrid sites. The most beautiful thing for me was the Catedral de la Almudena which had recently been remodeled to meld modern art into the gothic architecture.
