Prendila Così

Trees typical of the "Jardines del Retiro" in Madrid. Young family at the park. The main attraction at the "Jardines del Retiro" as far as I could tell, and deservedly so. I thought I'd get creative here and take a picture of someone taking a picture of someone taking a picture of them taking a picture. The view of the park from a bit higher up. Another inception moment as this lady is taking a picture of a man in the distance. Kids playing/slightly bothering a duck. The group before entering the Reina Sofia museum. Picture of a cool early 20th century painting. This one reminded me of my childhood house so I just had to take a picture. Giving the cold shoulder to this Dali girl. Traffic in Spain. A picture of what looks to be a Lion King precursor used a technique that went over my head. The busy streets of Madrid. An honest picture of Madrid, I like to think.

These are pictures from our visit to Madrid. We went to two different museums and also had time to visit the park nearby and then we had some time to safely wonder around.

My one true love is my team: Juventus and while most days I&#39;m a completely rational being, there&#39;s a 2-hour window during the weekend where I am lost in the joy of fandom. I also play intramural soccer, with semi-finals being the best result so far (fingers-crossed for finals next year!!!!). Always a fan of arguing, I can also be spotted challenging people&#39;s beliefs or stances on a daily basis to spark interesting conversations. Never an avid reader, but more of a picky one, my favourite genre is historical fiction, preferably pre-medieval. Another hobby is singing which I do aloofly around people, so much so that I ended up singing for the Gospel Choir at Gettysburg College, though not being a believer.</span></p>
