Well...we left El Escorial after an afternoon of catching lizards at the royal college. We also picnicked at the bus station before boarding to leave back to Madrid. I have pics to upload but can't right now. Long story short, our train to Paris was cancelled due to the French strikes. We tried renting a car or taking a bus but were advised by our French friend, Fabien, to not even attempt it. Meanwhile we are in Madrid until tomorrow. We will try to fly to Rome tomorrow morning in order to keep the rest of our reservations. Please keep praying, home based friends. Pics will come later at the hotel. It is a very modern hotel and we wish we were in a more traditional place. However, staying close to the airport has proved helpful. All is well with all of us. We are trying to make the most of it!
