Off to Madrid today for the final leg of our trip. We took the high speed train from Cordoba. It took less time than our trip from the Algarve and is twice as far! Pleasant trip through the arid countryside. Arrived in the huge bustling city of Madrid and decided to walk the short distance to our apartment with our luggage. A few wrong turns, hills and a fight before we found our quaint little apartment where our kind host was patiently waiting for us. Once again we unpacked and then took off to explore the city, get our bearings and find some groceries and something to eat.
