Journal Entry:
Spent my last morning in Madrid walking around Sol. Had lunch, and caught the metro to Chamartin train station. Seeing how I had no idea when the next train to San Sebastián came I was relieved to only have to wait 90 minutes. The train ride was long an uneventful with two movies (My Best Friends Wedding, and Bogus), both in Spanish, showing.

Got to San Sebastián a little before 10pm. Found a room from a tout at the train station. It's a little dodgy, but I've stayed in worse and I just didn't want to deal with finding someplace else.

Walked into the old town (my room is more in the commercial district near the cathedral - maybe a ten minute walk) for dinner (hot sandwiches - not very exciting, but good) and a look around.
