October is flying by and i haven't shared my madrid photos yet--many apologies! we arrived in madrid on a monday afternoon and as soon as we got to the city we were in love. it reminded us of chicago, everyone running around to somewhere important to be. i loved the public parks and squares--if you walked for five minutes you were bound to run into one! the city was full of cars and scooters zooming around but there were large streets dedicated to pedestrian traffic (and full of restaurants and shops!) we did quite a bit of shopping while we were in the city. we discovered a modern market where we shared churros and went back for tapas.
