Highlighted Travel Photos: Stuck at the Madrid Airport
September 26, 2008

Due to a missed flight connection, we lost a day of trip to the Madrid Airport.  A shiny, smoky new facility with an appalling selection of restaurants and little else.  In hindsight, we should have made the hour-long trip by rail into the City, but frankly Madrid itself is only marginally more interesting.  Instead of watching the sunset over Morocco, we watched it set over an empty international terminal, while some crazed psychotic was being moved from his plane, beaten and tasered along the way.
