Today I slept in. I did not walk up until 8:45am which for me is pretty darn late. Then I just layed in bed for a while and relaxed. It was really nice.
About 11:00am I ventured out into Madrid. Taking the Metro to the plaza del Sol and then just wandering. I managed to find San Gines which is famous for Chocolate and Churros. In a word Yum! I just wandered without a real destination. After about a bit I came upon plaza Santiago and the church of Santiago. I went in and found that mass was in progress so I stayed and attended mass. It was really nice. After mass i wandered some more and did some very important shopping for my Granddaughter and future Grandson. It is always fun to get a little something for them. It is really the only souvenir that I need from my trip.
Today is the finals of the Champions league for Soccer. Real Madrid and Juventus are playing in Wales. The streets are crowded with Soccer fans and I know that tonight is going to be a big party in Madrid. I have an 6:30am flight so no party for me. Cannot wait to get home to see my family.
All in all another great Camino experience. Hasta luego and Nos Vemos pronto Spain.
