On our way to Madrid - June 16, 2014

Early rise in the morning to catch our pumpkin coach to Madrid. We all have been made to feel like princesses since we left home. We had a long drive to Madrid but the drive was broken up by a trip to a local winery of Valdepenas Winery. We were treated to a V.I.P. tour of the winery and then what a delicious meal we had of salad, local dish of of migas, a pork dish and a local dish of panna de galatraba. We had an amazing visit with amazing people. We thanked these wonderful people with "May The Good Lord Bless and Keep You." A magical moment!


Back on the coach for a 3 hour drive to Madrid and to check into our final hotel for this trip.

We arrived at our hotel and checked in long enough to brush our teeth and out of the gates and on to our Flamenco Dance evening at Villa Rosa. We witnessed the pure art of the dance and were mesmerized by the dancers freestyle dance that told a story of sadness, pain and then joy. The dancers moved with such passion it looked like each one of the dancers danced to exhaustion. The dances were not choreographed and were based on what the dancers felt or how they wanted to express the story. When the dance was finished the dancers and audience were breathless.


 Back to the hotel and to bed after a long travel day and a wonderful evening.
