Un torneo en Valencia: Sunday

This post is part 2 of Un torneo en Valencia.  Read part 1 here.

After getting to bed around 4:30am, we woke up at 9am in order to partake in the hostel's free breakfast from 9-10.  After getting up and going to the kitchen, I quickly learned that I should have slept an extra hour.  Oh well.

After packing up and checking out, we tossed our stuff in the car and started walking around the city.  I love walking around Spanish cities; everything is gorgeous.

While walking around, we stumbled across the Torres de Serranos (Serranos Towers), which happened to have free admission that day.  It didn't look so tall from the bottom, but once we had climbed up I discovered there were some great views of Valencia.

Once we walked back down to street-level, two players from Valencia and one from Barcelona met up with us, and we went to lunch together.

My first plate was Valencian paella, a well-known rice dish with meats.

First plate: Paella Valenciana

Second plate: Lomo

We headed back towards the car after lunch, and on the walk I saw lots of awesome graffiti/murals.

It was a safe, three and a half hour car ride back to Madrid.  I think I passed out a couple of times due to being so tired, but we were playing more car games for most of the ride.

As always, all photos can be seen on my Shutterfly page.
