Madrid Sept 24
After an uneventful ride to Madrid this morning, we arrived shortly after noon, took the Metro to the stop closest to the hostal for which we have reservations for tomorrow night. We were able to get a room a day early and tomorrow I can switch to a single room for the next two nights. After a short break for email ( the hostal has free wifi), we took off for the Thyssen museum. I had forgotten how large the collection is, it is huge. Unfortunately many of the Impressionist paintings, including all the Monet's seem to be on loan to other museums. Marge will catch an airport shuttle outside the hostal at 6:45 tomorrow morning, so she is busy packing. I think I will take the bus to Toledo tomorrow and do some sightseeing there. It is supposed to have the finest cathedral in Spain. Since I have seen many of Spain's cathedrals already, I will give my opinion tomorrow.
