On the way back to France, we made an overnight stop at Madrid. We had all been there before so we did not make any real sightseeing or museum visits … nor did we have the time.
Here are few illustrations of what we saw and did. The top picture is of course from Plaza Mayor, where also this charming flamenco dancer performed.
A few photos from around Puerta del Sol, some typical fans – “abanicos” - in a shop window and the crowd in the adjacent crowded street, Calle Preciados.
Finally, these pictures from the road. You can still see the famous “Osborne” bulls around, but now all in black. The windmills of Don Quixote (Don Quijote) have been replaced by wind turbines.
