We woke up early to take a train to Madrid. Spain has some new high speed trains that travel between Barcelona and Madrid that were actually really nice. It was almost like being on an airplane. They even showed a move, unfortunately it was Mama Mia. Honestly the worst movie I have ever seen. I have seen the show and actually enjoyed it, but the movie was bad. The only entertaining part was watching the movie in Spanish only to have them break out into song in English.

When we got to Madrid we set out to explore the city. We pretty much walked all over the entire thing. We saw the palace, many of the gardens, monuments, and cool plazas that Madrid has. The pastries there were amazing. I will be sure to feature some in my next eurobasedson post. That night we went to the Madrid train station and after talking to several different people we got permission to stay the night inside the station. The cement was hard, but its nice knowing that they kick everyone else out so that you don't have to worry about getting robbed in your sleep like you do sleeping outside the station.
