We're really diving into the cultural shine of the city -- I've spent the entirety of the last two days at art museums, taking in Raphel, Picasso, DalĂ­, Velasquez, Ribera, Rembrant, Goya and El Greco, learning about space, dimension, lighting, the size and speed of brush strokes, and how to see influences of several art movements on a single canvass.

Kim spent today jogging a 12K with a pan-European crowd.

We're not sure what's next on the agenda. Here are our most compelling options, in no particular order:
  1. Go to Croatia, where the cost of living is cheaper
  2. Go to Amsterdam to celebrate Queen's Day, a major annual festival, on Wednesday
  3. Go to a farm in southern Spain
  4. Go to a farm in Italy
  5. Stay in Madrid and get jobs teaching English
