We welcomed in 2001 in Madrid, Spain.  After two great, warm weeks in the Canary Islands, we traveled to Madrid for the New Year's holiday weekend. We left 75 degree weather and were abruptly in freezing winter weather in Madrid! Unfortunately, we didn't bring heavy winter clothes! We decided to go shopping for some. We visited the Prado Art Museum, saw the landmarks of downtown Madrid, and celebrated the holidays.
