Arrived Madrid. Rumor confirmed. Details to follow:
Readers, the truth is now confirmed. The rain in Spain really does stay mainly in the plain.
We got to the Madrid airport about 9 a.m. on New Years Day. It took until past one to get to our hotel (stopped for lunch). We promptly crashed. An eight-hour trans-Atlantic flight gives not time for sleep.
Up in time for dinner and headed out for some spectacular Spanish cuisine. Found a Burger King that serves salads. Weather was just fine. Until we got ready to go back to our hotel. Yes, the rain does stay mainly in the plane.
