1/22/14 Day 6 Madrid
Moving to another host today, surprisingly close, still in Lavapies. We are meeting Pepe at his place at 11a.m. We easily find the apartment with only about 6 blocks of distance between our hosts. After meeting and getting to know each other we are given the keys to the place and head out for the day. As Pepe is a software designer he works from home but will be busy until 10:30p.m. We decide to first grab some lunch at the market: baguette, chorizo, Gouda and a 1liter wine juice box, grand total 4 euros, score! We spend a while trying to locate a nice place to eat it and settle on a park overlooking the city with a variety of dogs playing together. Upon sitting down, pulling out our lunch fixins and realizing that a third dog was core begging for food and being yelled at by its owner we come to the conclusion that, we are enjoying our lunch in a dog park...stupid. so we pack up our things and move onward so that we won't be such a tease. We land in the gardens behind the royal palace, a place we have missed open hours 2 times now.
