Madrid, Day 1

May 30, 2009

The first day we had in Madrid was spent wandering around but first we went over to another hostel to meet Tyler to go and get phones but ended up waiting for a little while until all of a sudden I heard someone calling, “Jake, Aric” and we looked up and at the same time both said “Joe?”  who was leaning out his window.   I was extremely excited because I have never had a conversation with someone who was leaning out a window.  This started the day where we wandered around and ended up at the nearby plaza Sol where we ended up getting phones.  We headed back to Las Musas before setting out again.  On the way out this time we noticed a building that pretty much looked like any other building except the facade was an Escher print.

We ended up stumbling on Plaza Mayor, although we did not know its significance yet, which had some interesting street performers from the good (pictured below) to the bad (fat Spiderman).
