World Trip 2006: Day 95 – Barcelona to Madrid, Spain

Saturday 1 July 2006
Highlights: The Madrid Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras

Today was supposed to only be travelling to Madrid but when we got to the city we found the bus couldn’t get into our accommodation.   Leaving the bus and hiking plus using the metro most people were not happy (it was 35) especially after we all had little sleep in the heat the night before.  However after we checked in I learnt that my room overlooked the parade for the ’Madrid Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras’.   What a show!!   A few fellow travellers actually got into the parade and took their tops off.   It was 3 hours of fun that kind of went the entire night (not good for sleeping especially without air conditioning again).
