Madrid: A Warm First Impression

This is what our Navidad en Madrid started like...

Tree of gold at Puerta del Sol.

Mural at Mercado de la Cebada.

The sky was blue at Puerta de Toledo!

The Egyptian gift of the Temple de Debod.

Markets at Plaza de EspaƱa.

A Vespa with an entrance.

Chocolate con churros.

A good walk.

Sunny church steps by the Prado.

Retiro Park beckons!

Monument Alfonso XII hosts rowboats of lovers and friends.

The Palace of Crystal glitters in the sunset, enhanced only by live Christmas music by its lake.

On the way to tapas.

Catching the metro at Plaza de Cibeles.

We love Madrid. It's friendly, beautiful, and, best of all, it's a warm 55 degrees Fahrenheit!
