We got up this morning to drop some laundry off at a nearby laundromat. We decided it was worth the few extra euros to have them do it for us rather than sit there for the few hours it would take to do it ourselves.

It’s been raining this morning so we made our way to the local Starbucks for shelter and coffee and a chance to review our rainy day options.

I took the opportunity to see if I could clean my glasses and I guess I was a tad bit more vigorous than was prudent as I suddenly found myself holding only half of my glasses in one hand as the other half clattered across the table top…

There’s no amount of nerdly electrical tape in the world that’s going to patch this geek’s glasses back together.

Cynthia suggested we head over to the Cortes Ingles optical department where she had purchased her contact lens solution previously and see if they might be able to repair them.

They said it would be no problem, but they would need to send them off to be repaired and we would have them back in three days. With any luck I will have them back on Saturday or, worst case, I will get them when we return to Madrid at the end of the month.

Once again Cynthia’s Spanish language skills have saved the day.

Fortunately for me, I decided to carry my extra pair of glasses just in case of emergency…
