The Prado

Tday´s a museum day -- first the Prado, then its lesser cousin the thyssen acros the stret, then Goya´s tomb across town. The Prado was great for its dozen or so best paintings, the most famous ones by Goya, Velasquez, El Greco, that we´ve all seen reproduced. unlike what I´ve heard, it wsn´t great all the way through -- there´s plenty of stuff worth walking by without a glance. I rate the Met in NY higher overall.

I´ve got three new shirts and some spiffy Euro-socks and excessively brief underwear.

That's all for today, probably -- tomorrow we go to Toledo, a short drive south.
