If you were reading our first blog you would find the market. After that we took a tuk tuk around Madrid. We had a fantastic driver called Hellen. She spoke English and showed us all the main things to see around Madrid. It was really interesting and fun to do on our last day. After the tuk tuk we came home and went out for dinner at Plaza Mayor. Which is the Plaza that we are staying at. It was a very nice dinner. We played with toys that light up when you throw them up in the ... read more

Zoe This morning I woke up and got ready for Córdoba. Córdoba is the capital of Andalusia. The drive was 2 hours from our house. When we arrived we went to The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba.

Bella and I had a swim in the pool. Then dad went to collect Michael from the airport. Michael is bella's godfather. Josia, Kym, Bella and I walked down to the festival in Cartama.
