The young people are off on their own this morning (with chaperones, don’t worry mom and dad!), exploring this magical city of Madrid. We’re going to gather back here at the hotel at 6 p.m. our time so we can get ready for the opening Mass. You see World Youth Day signs everywhere here, so the town is really pumped to have the kids. We had a very nice woman named Pillar explain Madrid to us while we toured via bus. I thought you might dig a little audio explanation of its name.
Here is a small visual recap of what we saw yesterday in Madrid. More later!
