Madrid has an undeserved bad reputation. Everyone says Barcelona is soooo much better: more nightlife, more crap to do, blah blah blah. But I like Madrid! Between the amazing museums (you can see Guernica here, Picasso’s masterpiece), the lovey parks and royal grounds, and the HAM-Madrid’s a pretty awesome capital city. What made it especially cool for us is that my friend Lenka flew from London to explore and drink sherry with us. But even without Lenka’s awesome presence, we would have had no problem keeping ourselves happily occupied here. It’s the city in which I finally discovered chocos con churros, after all.
