Madrid, Saturday Afternoon

Once we’d settled in the hotel, we wandered out to explore the area around the hotel. First thing was to get a beer though, which came with a welcome plate of olives. 

There was a large park nearby, very busy with people, but nice paths and lots of shade…

And a nice lake:

And various ornamental bits:

We managed to find a geocache as well, which was a bonus, especially given the number of people around!

An interesting arch:
Then time for more beer and supper. We found a cafe table in a very busy square nearby – but at least we were away from the traffic.

After an excellent salad, we headed back to the hotel via a busy pedestrian street, coming across this fantastic green wall on the way. 

You can just see Tina in the photo…
