I really must have that "this guy belongs to someone" look. Again more than one person on today's expedition was surprised that I was traveling alone. I had a nice chat with a lady from Miami where I did mention that I am divorced for about 4 years now. (Yes there are lots of different dates but 4 years is easier and less "counting the days" than 3 1/2). I suspect that today's guide had some sort of interest as he kept mentioning his failed love life (really?) and making aside comments in English to me as the only English speaker on the tour. He did stop when I commented that it was too bad that my girlfriend who I'd recently broken up with didn't come. That at least indicated that my preference didn't run to trim Spanish men wink Previous comments about my children didn't seem to have an impact.

Had fabulous service and a good meal at a cafe this evening where I've gone to a couple of times now. I made sure to give them a glowing online review on Google. That stuff is gold to small companies.

Part of today's tour was in Avila where we viewed some relics of St Teresa. I'm neither Catholic nor even religious but I was very moved. There was (of course) a gift shop and I was thinking how much B's mother would have loved to see the pictures I took today, have heard my stories and appreciated something from the gift shop like rosary beads. I really am very fond of B's mother. She would tell me that she was praying for me and when she heard that my son-in-law was deployed she promised to pray for him as well. She would go out of her way to visit with me and was always thrilled when B and I would come to visit and would brag about me to everyone. I would joke that if only she were 20 years younger - she's 92 - that B would have had a run for her money.

Tomorrow is sleeping in a bit and then the Prado museum. I'm figuring that will take most of the day I need to plan my day for Saturday. I'm really looking forward to getting home but have certainly gotten my boots under me now.

Andrew,

I am so happy to read how you are faring as a solo tourist. Sounds like you are thoroughly enjoying yourself and meeting some new people along the way. I had to chuckle about Tour Guide's comments and how you gently stopped him in his tracks about your former girlfriend. LOL!

Enjoy your day tomorrow. Take plenty of photos in and around the Prado museum. I have truly enjoyed the photos you have posted thus far.

Andrew,

Are you going to Barcelona? Some day I want to see Basílica de la Sagrada Família. It's surreal, particularly inside the basilica. Construction started in 1882 and they're still working on it.

Just Madrid plus side trips to Toledo, Alcalá de Henares, Segovia and Avila.

I've seen a couple of cathedrals, palaces and at least one basilica. Spent today at the Prado. One day at Prado certainly didn't seem like enough. I wore out the battery on the audio guide in the 7 hours I was there and only got most of the way through the first floor.

I came to Madrid mainly for the Cervantes museum just outside the city. Everything else including the thigh-buster hills I've been walking on has been a bonus. Oh - and the tapas is generally disappointingly whatever cheap stuff they bar gives away with a beer. The coffee though is generally quite good as long as you don't expect it to be served in giant mugs with free refills like we do in North America. If you do ever go to Madrid, ignore the tourist draw of tapas and paella. The real thing that they have here is delicious Iberian ham. They are so fond if it that in the tourist shops you can actually get ham shaped pillows.

Heading home on Sunday morning at butts a.m. Trying to figure out what to do for the last day. I may just get a tourist pass on the Metro and stop at semi random places and explore.

You'll have to track me down on social media. I've been posting quite the travelogue.

I budget for a couple of trips to see my daughter in the US plus one bigger trip per year for me. Barcelona while interesting doesn't have any specific attraction to me. Not sure where I'll aim for next year.

Well, where have you already been? London, Paris, Rome are musts. I loved Portugal. Vienna is quite nice. I also loved Edinburgh.

Florence.....I think you’d love it, and easy to walk around as it’s all pedestrianised.

My ex insisted on tropical beaches so just Cuba and the last trip to the Pacific coast of Mexico where she dropped the bomb on me just before my birthday.

Westo - Florence is a possibility. The history of the Medici is fascinating.

S and I have been exchanging messages and she has asked me to bring her back a palace. Almost done breakfast and now have a mission. My days always go better with that.
