After sleeping in from being jet lagged...
we finally got up and headed over to el Rastro- the most popular open air market in Madrid which is held every Sunday.  Rows and rows of vendors selling everything from toys, to shoes and hats, to clothing and food lined block after block after block.  We wandered around for a bit, and then stopped to let the kids run around in some of Madrid's cute and colorful playgrounds.  It seems like there are little play areas for kids all over the city, and the boys had so much fun climbing and playing (and so did we)!

The rest of the day we just wandered around Plaza Mayor and the streets nearby, stopping to enjoy some tapas and sangria.

That night we went to see a Flamenco Show at Las Tablas.  The show was great, and the boys (especially Richie) were glued to it!  I danced Flamenco when I was younger, so I really wanted to see a show in Spain.

It was another great day and night in Madrid!  The next day we took a day trip to Toledo.  Stay tuned for more on that.
