Feet feeling a whole lot better now. Thought I would have a different breakfast. So I treated myself to chocolate and churros. A breakfast that consists of dipping pastry sticks into a cup of thick hot chocolate. I thought it was delicious. So did a couple of my Facebook friends.
Feeling happy I made my way to the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. What is extraordinary is the museum was once a private collection. The paintings date from 13th to 20th century and I have to say the whole experience was amazing. One of the best museums I have visited. One can only guess at the value of the collection.
I had now decided to ditch MTrip and started to make my own way to visit a couple of museums mentioned in the book supplied with the Madrid card. The first one was the Museum of Madrid. This was a museum of the history of Madrid. Being a history buff I was looking forward to this. However, the reality was a huge disappointment. It was one room with a couple of exhibits. In truth there were more staff than exhibits. So I decided to make my way to the Museo de la Biblioteca Nacional de España. Again not a big museum but it had a whole lot more to offer especially a temporary exhibition dedicated to Leonardo de Vinci.
After resting I noticed the Hard Rock Cafe. I must admit that I will have a meal in the Hard Rock Cafe if there is one available. Plus with my Madrid card I was entitled to a discounted meal. After the meal I went back to the hostel to relax with a few beers. I ended talking to people and stayed up late talking. All in all a really good day which made me look forward to the next day.
Until then stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
