Madrid, Pt. 1

We left Bordeaux for San Sebastian, then Charlie & I returned the car in Biarritz the next day (to avoid a one-way fee in another country) coming back by bus. Spent a nice afternoon in San Sebastian enjoying the view from Mont Igueldo, walking along La Concha beach, and having dinner in the old town.

The next morning we left early by train for Madrid where we are staying in another AirBnb. We were met by a very nice host, Diego, who strolled with us around the neighborhood pointing out restaurants & shops and discussing his work writing algorithms for satellite imagery. The next day we walked to the Palacio Real, the Plaza Mayor, the Gran Via, the Retiro, and came home on the Metro. (Serendipitously, we arrived at the Royal Palace right in time to see their version of “the changing of the guards.”)
