Anyways, we headed to Madrid today with an actual plan to go to El Museo del Traje and the Real Madrid Stadium. It was quite the lo-o-o-ong day, but very fun! I loved the museum (a museum of 18th, 19th, and 20th century clothes....really, what's not to like?) and the stadium was awesome! I'm not a huge soccer fanatic, but it definitely was exciting to be there. Oh, and we also stopped at El Mercado de San Miguel again and got some shish kabobs and truffles...oh my goodness, I might take the train all the way to Madrid just for those truffles! We also stopped at good 'ol Mickey D's to see how it compared to the U.S. It was basically the same but a nice little bit of home!
We got back home just in time for dinner (at like 9:45 mind you) and had a lovely discussion with our host mom about the F-word, what it means, how its pronounced, and similar words in Spanish. We also tried to teach her how to pronounce "peanuts" in English, which she said best she could, minus the T...Hahahaha I was dying of laughter! It was quite the risqué dinner conversation, but definitely a memorable one.
