10/3/13 – Urban Hikers

Today, according to Google Maps, we walked 7.4km through Madrid, a pretty respectable distance for a Sunday afternoon stroll! It all started yesterday during our neighbourhood explorations, when we discovered a road that we thought would lead to Paseo de la Castellana. We decided to return, and find out if it did or no. It did!  We followed it all the way to the base of the Cuatro Torres, briefly taking shelter in McDonalds to avoid a freak rainstorm. We then carried on walking all the way to Nuevos Ministerios, where we took advantage of the Gourmet Experience at El Corte Ingles to buy some delicious looking hamburgers, tahini and some intriguing grapefruit beer. A highly successful Sunday afternoon.
