After walking the Camino Aragones from Lourdes, Camino Invierno, and Camino Irish (English), I trained to Madrid to meet with Mika flying in from Japan.
A bit of a splurge was in order after a 2 month separation so I reserved us a room at The Westin Palace.

Always great to start a Camino at a Santiago Church where we got our first stamp and then played the tourists.
Saw the Royal Palace and Cathedral.
We then walked to Sol the center of Spain.
We really enjoyed Mercado de San Miguel for great tapas.
And then relaxed Plaza Mayor sipping Sangrias.
After siesta we toured Prado for free (Tuesday’s only) at 6:30 to 8.
