Seems like a nice girl

We´re away in Madrid for a few days. Just come back from the Prado. I agree with Alan Bennett about Art being "all very well but very hard on the feet." The secret is to target a few paintings and get in and out with the minimum of fatigue. Brought up short by Moro´s portrait of Mary Tudor, who was, I suppose, Queen of Spain too. She looks like the kind of person who could happily burn heretics. Then again, so could her sister.
