1. Puerta de Toledo was a bit disappointing, especially considering I walked all the way there from Plaza Mayor. However, since I had just finished lunch, it was a good exercise to walk off the food. From this angle, it looks very tiny and insignificant.



2. The perspective changes once I got to the roundabout.





4. With this attraction now scratched off my list, I wandered through some local streets to head back to Plaza Mayor. The guidebook didn't have much to say about this part of town. The buildings were less ornate but nevertheless were well-kept.











9. The side streets were not clogged with traffic, and made the walking experience more pleasant. The temperatures were just perfect on this autumn day.

















17. Now I'm back in Sol and continue my walking tour to a huge park just east of the old town centre.





















27. I used to find amazement at the sight of double decker buses outside the UK and Hong Kong. However, these tourist double deckers are getting so common these days everywhere, I'm no longer so intrigued, yet still interested to take a photo.







30. I came by here on the first day, but it was late and the lighting was not so good so those photos came out poorly. I probably came a bit too late in the day since most of the building was not lit already.





























44. Rescue me, oh prince.

The double-decked buses were not only commun in the UK... In Madrid these buses were used until the forties :)

Great to see old photos of double-deckers in Madrid. Lisbon still had them in 1975 but I don't remember seeing any in Madrid in 1972 but the guide book I bought still had photos of them in the Gran Via.
