Day 1 - All 16 Pilgrims Safe in Madrid

June 5th, 2019

Arrived in n Madrid and we were able to visit with Trisha Ballsrud, daughter of Clyde and Judy Ballsrud who are members.  We ate at a restaurant on a street called love of God, my rough translation.  It seemed appropriate because of our connection to Trisha through Good Shepherd.  


One of us ordered a cheeseburger at dinner tonight in Madrid and got THIS! (Octopus - quite tasty actually)


Second two pictures are from inside the Cathedral (Santa Maria la Real de La Almudena) next to the Royal Palace.  That is Pat’s back in the foreground of both.

Last picture is a view from the upper balcony of the Cathedral of the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Royal Palace.
