MADRID, Spain - April 2010

During the Easter holiday's week, i've been to Madrid for the first time, i loved the place. Things that i've noticed were:

- Alot of police and security around, makes you feel a bit too safe
- Alot of graffiti.
- Very clean streets.
- People offering free drinks to you at night time (probably the best aspect xD)

Lets go ahead with the photos then, i shall post some every so often since there are alot of them













































Await the rest

I have found the reason why many people think that Spain is in Southamerica



I love Madrid in the cloudy days. What parts of Madrid did you visited?

Thanks for the comments, as a response to wapo:

I stayed in a flat with my uncle in Moncloa, places i've visited we're the usual tourist areas but also around Villaverde and Moncloa itself.

More shots:



























And to finish off nicely:

I am sorry to say that but Mexico (where the Mariachis belong to) is NOT in South America same as Spain is not in Eastern Europe...
