Journal Entry:
Got woken up at 6:45 by construction outside our window. Right outside our window, on the sixth floor. They were working on the panaling. Anyway since it's way to hot to shut the window we checked out and found a new place over in Sol. It's much nicer, and the woman who runs it seems very cool.

Spent the day wandering around the Sol and Ópera districts. Walked with Brad through and around Plaza Mayor and the Palacio Real (and it's gardens). The gardens of the Palacio Real were especially good, lot's of nice shady trees (it's very hot here - over 40° C / 104° F), fountains, statues, and flowers. I went and wandered around the Basílica de San Francisco el Grande de Madrid and the Plaza de la Cebada in the La Latina area. Checked in at an internet cafe near the Basílica.
