Tapas and a Royal Palace
Yesterday students in Madrid got to try eating tapas at a local tapas bar in Madrid. As per tradition, we stood, used toothpicks as silverware, and threw our napkins on the the floor when we were done.
After tapas we headed over to the royal palace for a change of scenery. This eighteenth century palace is impressive and full of history. We were able to see the throne room and the dining room. We even stood in the room where Spain joined the European Union in the 1980s. Unfortunately, pictures cannot be taken in the royal state rooms, but we certainly took advantage of the entrance and exterior of the palace to get some awesome shots!
