March 31, 2013

Dear Friends and Family,

I have certainly left figuring out my blog to the last minute.  Bill and I are leaving for our 3-month Grand Tour of Europe the day after tomorrow on April 2.  We got confirmation of our reservations from the hotel today.  Hotel Plaza Mayor is in a 200-year-old building with no elevators. It seems to have lots of old world charm, and it's very close to cava-baja where we hope to do a Tapas crawl.  If you've never had tapas, they are  yummy appetizer-sized morsels in many shapes, sizes, and flavors.  Since we arrive in Madrid early Wednesday morning, I hope we can take a nap and then go out at night to explore Cava Baja.  Madrilenos don't even get started until 10 pm, so I think a nap will be a good idea.  We don't want to wimp out completely on our first night in Europe.   A little red wine and a few tapas sound like a great introduction to our Grand Tour and to Spain.
