Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.

More sightseeing in Madrid

Early morning walking so few people. This is Plaza Mayor. Later in the day it is full of people sitting in outdoor cafes. 
The Almudena Cathedral from the north as it faces the palace. I'll try to go back when it's open. 
The Palacio Real. The King doesn't live here but in a palace out of the city. This palace is used for state affairs. 
The Thyssen Bornemisza Museum was almost as impressive as the Prado.  
Puerta de Alcala. 
Museo Arqueologico. The museum was very well done. I especially enjoyed the Roman and the Christian periods as they related well to the area I just walked through. 
The interior of the museum was just completed two years ago.
