Madrid

In June 2017 we traveled to Madrid to spend a great week with Scott & Angela Shirey, and their two children - Kennedy and Olive.
Madrid is a super city.  It is the capital of Spain and is a modern clean and inviting city.
The city has a population of 3 million personas, while the greater metro region has about 6.5 million.
This makes it the third largest city in Europe.

Puertra Del Sol
This is perhaps the best known place in Madrid. 
It originated as one of the gates in the walled city that surrounded Madrid.



Today it is a busy street market and tourist haunt.
Kennedy, Blakey and Olive.




Plaza Mayor
Another well visited spot is the this plaza, or square.


 







Lot's of people out being seen, with or without heads, Minnie and Olive.



Buen Retiro Park
Madrid has worked hard at providing lots of green space and outdoor activities.  This is just one example.








And even the American tourists can enjoy it!
