Pongamos que hablo de Madrid

Someone told me once that it's not a good idea to get attached to places. But I can't help it; I'm a Madrid Junkie. I can never get enough of my hometown: its bustling streets during the day, its blue skies on spring and its world famous night life. But the really good thing about Madrid is that is a place to be lived, not to be visited. So try to join the rhythm of the city and forget for a while that you have a camera. ;-)

I'm just lucky enough as to live in my favorite area of my favorite city. In just a two minute walking, I can get to El Retiro
park, which is, imho, the most beautiful park of Madrid. If you happen to visit the place on a sunny Sunday morning, chances are that I will also be there!

This page is in under permanent construction, so stay tuned! :-D

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Incredibly full of live
  • Cons:Noisy and polluted as only a big city can be
  • In a nutshell:Vámonos de cañitas ;-)
