From Madrid to Arnsberg

On the morning of 5, Sept I woke up at 7.00 a.m., had a wash and switched on my laptop to find that the hotel was providing free internet facility. I checked on the mails, wrote some and closed by 8.30. Julia and Sebastian had got ready by then. We checked out of the hotel, walked for some distance to look for a place for the breakfast. Julia spotted one in which we could have some real good Spanish breakfast. We had Churros, Porras (pronounced as Porraaz) and few other things along with a very tasty coffee. As usual, Julia went for two glasses of fruit juice.

We then went towards the palace, the Basilica inaugurated by the Pope John Paul II in 1993, the Senate, the Plaza de Espanol and many other places on walk to enjoy their beauty once again in the morning sunlight. The palatial gardens were very good, though not as good as the Indian Moghul Gardens in the Presidential Palace (Rashtrapati Bhavan). Then we took the Metro back to Madrid Airport for our journey back to Germany. From Madrid we reached in the evening. We spotted our car in the fourth floor underground where thousands of cars are parked in each floor, and then left for Herscheid. After picking my luggage at Sebastian's place, we came to Arnsberg, where the K├╝sters live. It was almost 9.00 p.m. We had a quick wash, dinner, said good bye to eachother including the parents of Julia and went to bed early, as I and Julia were planning to leave early the next day for Aachen, in the border of Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany.
