We decided that we would go to the Prado first and then get a beer since we felt the art would be appreciated much more, than after. We then made reservations for the night train to Lisbon which would leave at 8 o'clock in the evening. Once that was completed we set off for the Prado for some culture and then a few beers.
We had been there for an hour or so and I walked into a one of the rooms and was appreciating the art and a guy and a women walk up and says are you Dan ? I said yes I am and he says I'm your cousin John, soon after that my Aunt and Uncle walked up and said hello. To say we were speechless is an understatement, I knew he was going to school in Sevilla for the summer and we planned to visit as we went around. However, my Aunt and Uncle had gone to visit and they had left Sevilla early and had stopped there for the day to visit the Prado as they were heading north. It just so happened that we stopped there at the same time and met up, as one would say what where the chances....well that day they were 100%. Of course the night train from Madrid to Lisbon was another experience that deserves a story. Maybe later
