After our delicious almuerzo, we went to Madrid again. This time we mostly just roamed around and took pictures, but it was a lot of fun. We went to a chocolateria called La Chocolateria San Ginés and got some extremely delicious churros and hot chocolate. The "hot chocolate" was nothing like in the U.S. It was more like just melted chocolate, it was so chocolatey and thick -- nothing like Swiss Miss or any of that lame powder stuff in the U.S.! Anyways, then we went back to the Palacio Royal and took some fun pictures then met up with the rest of our group to get some more to eat at the Mercado de San Miguel.
It was such a fun day in Madrid, I absolutely loved it! Okay, but here's something funny -- well, at least I thought it was funny. The whole time we were in Madrid, I kept thinking I saw the missionaries! I saw one guy walk past us with some writing over his chest pocket on his jacket and I thought "name tag? missionaries?!" but negative. Then I saw this kid with a school blazer with an emblem over his chest and I jumped a little, hoping it was a missionary, but no! I love seeing missionaries in different countries because it always makes me feel a little more at home. So then on the train, just as we were pulling up to our stop, I saw two missionaries walking down the steps and I was like, "Look, missionaries!" But then I paused because I didn't have my glasses on and I wanted to be sure but this time they really were the missionaries!! Haha I was so excited!
