King of Spain-redux
Ive been having some issues with my blog. I fixed them. Sorry for the double emails.
There is a palace here in Madrid where the King of Spain used to live. For 2 days, the Moxy Fruvous song was stuck in my head. Please listen to it here: King of Spain song(if you know your ’90s music, you might recognize Jian Gomeshi in this video)
I really hope this song has been stuck in your head now. “Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie…..”
We joined up with our tour group in Madrid. Quite a mixed bag of folks. Our tour leader is Carlos who is not from Spain but has a Spanish name and an Australian accent.
Dinner last night was a big group occasion which included unlimited sangria and nonstop food. It was wonderful.
Toms Birthday today
I was a smidge worried what we might do today, but he wanted to do what I want! So Hemingway haunts and some shopping. We only posed for the picture of the Real Palace above! We didn’t even go in!! How did I get so lucky?
We meandered around Madrid until it was time to get on our train to Barcelona.
Here is one more pic of the birthday boy doing what he likes.
Next stop Barcelona then Grenada then Seville. Probably gonna have some fun.
