Spain's capital of Madrid was my last stop on a whirlwind trip through western Europe.
The Prado (museum) houses a large number of masterpieces, and I recognized quite a few from my days of studying art history in college.
It's now one of my favorite museums, along with the Musee d'Orsay in Paris (impressionists) and the National Gallery of Art's East wing (modern) in Washington, DC.
My couchsurfing host also took me out to the popular La Latina nightlife area my last night.
