Day 15: Madrid

A matador gave honour to Ian Fleming who discovered penicillin. If no penicillin, their life would be at risk when attacked by the bull.

It was a free museum day, so we visited the Reina Sofia and Prado museum. The arts collection at Reina Sofia is mostly modern art, which I didn't like at all. I prefer the paintings at Prado, they looked so real which really showed the talent of the painters.
