This weekend Giancarlo and I went to Madrid! We visited our Spanish friends, who we met in Aachen this summer. They were so kind as to show us around the city and to take us to all the best places. Take a look at the pictures to see all of the cool places we went!
All of the street signs looked like this on the sides of buildings.
Cathedral de la Almudena
Memorial for Nuestra Señora de la Almudena
Laura and Sara
The gang is all back together.
Gran Via – Madrid’s version of Time Square
Plaza de España
If you are seeing this picture, don’t be mad at me Marta! I thought it was too cute not to put on my blog! And you look beautiful!
Giancarlo and I took a tour of the stadium Santiago Bernabéu.
Real Madrid Stadium
Changing rooms for the players
This is the tunnel the players on both teams walk down before the game.
We got to sit on the team’s bench on the field, except it wasn’t actually a bench, but very comfy seats.
Press box at the stadium: Giancarlo is sitting where the players would sit.
Kilometer Zero is the very center of Madrid and located in Puerta del Sol.
The train station had a small jungle in it with a pond for turtles and a small vendor area.
