Right, it's been a little while since I last posted, mainly due to photobucket's botch job of updating itself and therefore messing everything up including where all my albums are. However, until I can find another photo hosting site which can perform the same tasks as photobucket at the same price, I will have to stick with it.

Anyway, thank you all for your support and likes so far. Since buying a new camera, I have been out and about a few times after a two week trip back to the UK. The weather has also finally improved a little after copious rain during March and early April. Spring is here!

Great updates, Mike. Glad to see Spring has, finally, sprung; although if Spain is anything like Britain - the weather will remain totally unpredictable from one day to the next.

Thanks Jane! Yes, spring has most certainly sprung. I think this is the best time of year in Madrid as everything is so green. I bet by June it will all have dried out and be rather arid. You're right, last night it poured with rain lol.

Thanks Jane. Yes, Retiro is beautiful, meaning 'retreat' in English. It is very central, bordered by the centre to the west and the posh Barrio de Salamanca to the north :

I like Madrid - spacious, relaxed, beautifully situated - or that is how it appears from your photos.

Thanks Jane! You've pretty much summed up Madrid perfectly in that post. If one could sort the weather out it would be even better.

Are you tired of the weather?
I don't think Madrid is a relaxed city at all, it's a very vibrant city but it has very quiet places like some parks or neigborhoods.

I don't mind the weather really as variation is better than sunshine for days on end, it's just incredible how Madrid seems to receive all its bad weather at weekends and on puentes haha!

Jane may have meant relaxed as in 'not stressful'. Yes, Madrid is a very vibrant city but it is also a friendly city (in my experience anyway) which makes it a sort of combination of lively and relaxed at the same time. One can easily take a coffee beside a busy street with all the noise and still feel relaxed.
