Great pics. Spain is a real chill out place. Just be careful of purse snatchers and kids trained to snatch your wallet, especially at ATM's

yes, snatching, pick pocketing is common in madrid. Not just for tourist but for local as well. If anybody getting too friendly, something is wrong, simple back-off

Amazing locales RKB. What a stark contrast between your two travelogues (Leh / Spain). I'm switching back and forth between those too and it's a visual treat.

Beautiful pics, Bharat !

There seems to be hardly any traffic on the road ! Like Bangalore's traffic way back in 1974, when I moved in as a kid

Yeh Rkbharat,

I used to commute till Mendez Alvaro or Delicias from Gran Via,

every day evening I used to spend the time walking the streets or visiting park near Gran via.

Only bitter experience I had in Spain was when I went to watch Bull fight at Plaza De Toros.

Have fun in spain buddy.

Cheers
Raghu
