Madrid & Segovia

Spent a few lovely days in Madrid with my good friends Teresa and Gonzalo in February. Like I said, I’m playing catch up with all of my pictures. Anyway, we spent the first day we spent a lot of time mostly just walking around. I got to really get a feel for Madrid and the beautiful architecture there.

Ancient cash register. Fulfills my need for old things.

The next day, Teresa and I hopped on a bus to Segovia to go visit Gonzalo, who studies architecture there. We only got to spend an afternoon there, but it was so much fun.

We should start a band just to use this as the album cover.

The pretty picture above quickly devolved.

My final day in Madrid was spent running around again with Teresa and her family. We went on a segway tour that was super fun! I’d never been on a segway before and I’m proud to say my lack of athletic inclination did not affect my segway-ing abilities. After that, we had lunch and then went to Madrid Fashion week which was an awesome experience!

I thought these were adorable but Teresa informed me that the technique was all off, there are apparently much better chocolate hedgehogs.

Obviously a big thank you and lots of hugs go out to Teresa, Gonzalo, and their lovely family. I can’t imagine having had better guides or company. Can’t wait to go back!
