Madrid is hopping~

 

There is no night life in Spain. They stay up late but they get up late. That is not night life. That is delaying the day.

But there is the day, the Hop-on Hop-off Bus day of a vacation. You know the concept, 2 routes, the A-side and B-side. Yes, the A-side shows you the best must see sights of your city, and the B-side … yes, not so memorable shopping malls and planned middle-class communities (Heliotrope Hill, anyone?). Belle Époque. Neo-Moorish, Modern, Classical, Gothic/Neo-Gothic, Baroque … Did I leave one out? I’ll leave the spotting to my architecture friends (you know who you are). Maybe Brutalistic, which is what the Futbol stadium evinces (above the two sweet little chairs). And the perspective, remember is from that open upper deck, as you will see. If it all becomes too much, just kick back and begin the night!

About Joy Hendrickson

I am an adherent of the theory that we don't know what we don't know. I enjoy all things literary, visual, mysterious, and just beyond our grasp.
