What I learned About Madrid

When completing this project, I learned a few things about the city of Madrid. Like I learned that it never really gets that hot there, but it also doesn't get very cold. Also, I learned that there are a lot of weird and different foods in Madrid. Finally, I learned that the elevation of cities in Europe is very low. That is most of what I learned from this project.
