After spending a day traipsing around old our haunts in Boston on Sunday, the lovely personal personal trainer and I parked the new (used) all-terrain-corkscrew-pursuit-vehicle and made our way into the international terminal in Boston.
The flight was on time, and after a brief stop at Vino Volo, we were on a flight to Munich.
(According to the flight information on the computer screen provided by Lufthansa, at approximately 8:32 in the morning we were flying over Reading, and I did wave to Peter, who I didn’t see waving back).
After a brief layover in Munich (and some coffee and a nosh) we were soon on or way to Madrid, where after receiving our bags (corkscrews included) we hopped in a taxi to the apartment that we have rented for the week.
Our hosts arrived promptly, and helped us up the stairs to our temporary digs, and the place is quite nice. And, it is in a cute neighborhood with everything one would need within walking distance.
After stashing out bags, walk we did. No corkscrews as of yet, although I did find a small used furniture store that did indeed have an older pocketknife with corkscrew attached. Still, not my cup of tea really, so we passed on that one.
This morning we plan to go for a run, which will allow for a greater idea of the neighborhood, and those neighborhoods further afield. And, after that (and requisite showers) we will merely enjoy Madrid, the food, the architecture, the museums, and if an antique store should present itself, perhaps a little corkscrewing around.
Stay tuned, you never know what will turn up next!
