Sorolla Museum

Sorolla Museum

Madrid, Spain – January 12, 2011

Today at lunch, my good friend, Ron, and I walked to the Museo Sorolla.  It is a museum showcasing the collection and the works of the painter Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, 1863-1923.  The museum is in his old house.  It is just a few blocks from the embassy.

The Sorolla home is a three-story building with a basement. The garden was extremely nice too.

This was also the first day I was able to use my new Nikon D3100 camera. It worked very well; however, I need to work with it to better understand how to best use the camera.
