August 20

Wake up, Eat breakfast, Check out of hostel, Walk 1.2 miles to Alvaro’s home, Embrace an old friend, Remark that it has been five years since the his going away party, Walk around town on my own as he packs, Go to the Prado Museum and find that it is, perplexingly, free, Don’t question it, Splurge on the audio guide, Spend four hours in the Prado, Eat lunch in the museum cafe and try not to feel guilty about it, Feel like I’m playing tag with the beautiful blond girl sketching paintings, Eat lunch, Walk back to Alvaro’s, Help him pack, Look at his Kentucky memorabilia, Walk around his neighborhood with him, Get beers with his friends, Understand nothing of the conversation, Walk home, Say goodnight.
