Madrid, Mahou and more

La Rojigualda, Plaza de Colon
Symbol of the city
Sampling Mahou, the local brew, in the shade of Parque del Retiro

Immaculately sculpted trees

Palacio de Cristal - Madrid's version of the Crystal Palace

Terrapins terrorising the catfish

Proud noisy peacocks

Angel atop the Metropolis building

Fra Angelico's Angel in the Prado (perhaps my favourite artwork of the trip)

Antonella da Messina's weeping angel with Christ (another gem in the Prado)

City symbol sculpture in Puerta Del Sol

Mural in Plaza Mayor

Nerves of steel required for the rollercoasters in Parque de Atracciones

Painted patterns on the cathedral ceiling

Richard Hamilton retrospective at the Reina Sofia

Domenico Ghirlandhaio's beauty at the Thyssen Bornemisza

Michiel Sweerts' (new discovery for me), boy beauty at Thyssen Bornemisza
Loved this Edward Hopper, again at the Thyssen Bornemisza

Mas Mahou por favor....

I Love Madrid
