I guess Madrid is on the plains because today it was mainly raining.
But still I went on a major walking tour around town. This is the large boulevard that runs in front of my hotel and south through Madrid to the Prado Museum. It was pretty today, but I bet it's really gorgeous when the trees aren't dormant.
I found a movie theater that shows movies in English and I saw "Match Point," Woody Allen's new movie nominated for four Golden Globes. This is the best Woody Allen movie in a long time and it's no comedy. It's a thriller with some very exciting plot twists near the end. And one thing I really liked is the preview (which I saw several times) doesn't give away the whole movie.
Tomorrow it's off to Barcelona via train -- about four hours.
