Success! Found oatmeal. The big Carrefours supermarket was no help (but at least it was a big supermarket compared to the dinky one we went to yesterday), but we passed a health food store along the way that had it. I did learn that vegetarians (at least, the vegetarians at this health food store) won’t eat honey.

Today we went to the Reina Sophia Museum. Perfect day for a museum, since it was raining all day. This museum specializes in Spanish 20th century art, so there was a lot of Picasso, Dali and Miro. The highlight was Picasso’s Guernica.

The museum is an old converted hospital. I kept imagining nurses in nun’s habits scurrying through the huge cavernous hallways. The ceilings were sky high and the hallways as wide as the rooms. They certainly don’t build hospitals like that anymore. 

So, does this look like General Grievous or what?

And I think that if an artist includes "Are you confused" in his artwork, he's in trouble.
