As Diego has starded a wonderful thread based in classical Madrid and is sending tons of Pictures and I don´t want to interfere, I start this thread based mainly in pictures of my own showing different aspects of Madrid. I started another thread of Madrid in the cityscapes section, but as the majority of the pictures were of mine I´ve been suggested to start a new thread in this section. Anyway, no more words and lets go to the images.

Details of the city:

The River is called Manzanares. There isnt any lake inside the city. And the sea (Mediterranean sea) is about less than 400km far I think, in Valencia. But you can go also to San Sebastian (about 500km in the north, Atlantic Ocean).

El río se llama Manzanares. No hay ningún lago dentro de la ciudad. El mar, está a menos de 400km en Valencia (el Mediterráneo), pero puedes ir a San Sebastián (sobre 500km al norte, el Atlántico).

Thanks for your comments, my friends.

In a few days I promise to post new images.

I´m just waiting for a better weather. Lasts weeks have been very rainy, but it seems that next days will be sunny so I´ll take new pictures, some of not famous places.

Thanks again friends. :)
