Madrid: A Vibrant City

Arriving in a new city under the cover of darkness always adds a flair of mystery. And such was my arrival in Madrid after nearly 24 hours of travelling (which included a nearly nine-hour layover in Amsterdam). The benefit of such an arrival is the discovery the next morning when everything is awash in daylight.
This cross marked what was once the edge of the city wall.
We enjoyed 1 euro cervezas on the patio of the cerveceria one languid afternoon.
Madrid's vibrant hues, and my enchantment with them, reminded me a lot of Rome. And indeed, Madrid had a certain ambiance.
