MADRID, Spain

In April 2006 I went to Madrid for a few days with a school party as part of a Spanish trip combining Madrid and Cordoba into one week. We started off in Madrid for the first two and a half days. Here are the pictures. I have to say my photography skills were not as good a few years back so please excuse any poorer quality shots but I hope you like them all the same.

First Evening:














Day One:
















































































































Day Two:




















































The second part of the trip which was spent in Cordoba will be coming next in a new thread. Hope you liked!

When you say sultry, do you mean humid? The air is very clear in Madrid as it is so high up. Have fun when you're there, it's a beautiful city.

The Atocha Station garden is really nice, you forget you are in a train station when you walk through it. They even have a pond with water turtles and goldfishes!

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Really? Well I'm glad to show you these pics then. It's funny how similar to both New York it is in the modern parts and Paris or Rome in the older parts.

That's right, it does get quite stuffy though in the summer apparently. It certainly is a unique train station.

Thanks for the pics, you missed some nice places, but it is ok for a couple of days! I guess that your hotel was placed in Gran Via.
I am happy you enjoyed. And what about Cordoba?
