Photo TR: The Old Man takes his camera to Spain with TPR.

Postby OldJJman » Sun Jul 15, 2007 8:57 pm

I don't feel like typing a whole bunch about what everybody else has heard about, so I'll just give rough outlines and lots of pictures.

Day 0 Starts out 1 hour late out of LA, meeting others in Newark, camping out for another 6 hour delay, getting to Madrid. Heading off to dinner, etc...

Please enjoy.

Day 1

I went with Robb and Jon down to the central train station in Madrid, checking on things for Day 2. We, along with other early arrivals went to Parque de Atracciones de Madrid in the afternoon.

Nintendo Park? Hot damn, get me some tickets to that park! =)

Great TR so far, I think you pretty much covered the needs of the average 13-15 year old TPR member. Still curious about that Nintendo park though.

I have been walking around the house singing this over and over and over and over until I finally stopped doing it and sort of forgot about it. Until now. Damn you, Robb!

^ Me too!!! I'm not even a Family Guy fan, and at random intervals during the trip and then ever since, in completely silence, suddenly I hear "I'm a tumour I'm a tumour I'm a tumour!" and have to sing it.

Grrr.

That picture IS odd, it's like my whole body is hidden behind Robb. LOL at Piers's ghostly chef!! Ed looks like he has a wooden ponytail, and there's something off about the perspective of the green things behind Elissa. Interesting focus.

The "green things behind Elissa" look like waving seaweed, as though she were in a Little Mermaid remake.
