The first day in a new country always presents interesting challenges. We were pleased that we connected uneventfully at the Newark airport with our travel companions, Al and Ingrid. The flight pushed back from the gate on time, flew quietly over the Atlantic with most of its patrons sleeping peacefully. After a taxi ride and a short rest, we ventured forth to get a noon meal. All of Spain takes a siesta from 2-5Pm, with the big meal eaten prior. The exchange rate is about even, so figuring the cost isn’t too difficult. The biggest challenge is figuring out the menu! Here are some examples from the Tapas Bar where we ate a small lunch.
Now for a siesta and then an evening at the Prada. Sometime soon, I think we will all crash for a long rest, but for now, we’re going to go for it!
