Madrid, Spain – June 13, 2010
Earlier today, Hillary and I went on what will probably be our last father-daughter date before she goes to college. We went to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Queen Sofía National Art Center Museum). We both liked this museum a lot more than the Prado Museum. Modern art is not necessarily my favorite style; however, I really enjoyed seeing all of the works by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Just possibly the best part of our visit today was that admission for everyone was free!
We walked through a lot of the museum and took a lot of photographs. After the museum, we walked across the plaza and had lunch. I had a pizza and Hillary had pasta.
When we finished lunch we walked north to an area near the Prado. We were on a mission to buy Leslie a new hand-fan. The one she had was broken. On our way, we came across a wall of vegetation and a unique elephant sculpture.
Not too far from the wall, we found a hand-fan at a tourist kiosk. Then, Hillary and I walked back to the Metro and rode home.
