Madrid - an evening walk around the historical centre

A quick 'Hola' from Madrid.

Fred and I managed a walk around the old city yesterday evening after an afternoon in the office. We are staying on the outskirts and have a 25 minute bus ride to Plaza Del Sol, in the middle of the old city.

First impressions are of a very clean city with some beautiful highly ornamented buildings in all sorts of styles from baroque to art deco and eclectism.

A five minute stop at the Museo del Jamon, saw us drinking each a glass fofrefeshing Amstel, sharing a large fresh croissant filled with ham and cheese adn scoffing a small plate of delicious green olives, all for less than 5 euros!

The weather is sunny but quite cool, walking around in the evening witha fresh wind, it felt as cool as it had in Stockholm at the weekend. Not excatly what one expects in mid-August. Oh well.
