Madrid in 72ish Hours

I was quite sad to leave San Sebastian, especially after having such a blast on Tuesday night, but it was time for me to move on.  I took the ALSA bus from D/SS to Madrid, which was actually quite nice.  Once I got to Madrid, I caught a cab to the hostel.  that evening I didn't do anything, I was highly unmotivated to do any walking.  The next few days I spent trying to see all of the major sites in Madrid.  To be honest, I felt that Madrid lacked character, it seemed to me like it could have been a city in Florida or in Texas.  I have heard that Madrid has an impressive night scene, which I will need to check out when I loop back into the city.  I will also try to stay in another area of town that isn't as touristy.  There were some absolutely beautiful parks and gorgeous architecture. But overall, I wasn't particularly impressed.  I hope my next stay can change my opinion.
