Here are some pictures of el Parque del Buen Retiro. I wrote everything in Spanish and English so that my family can watch it too!!

12 would indeed help to type faster. It would also help if the local Locutorio got some new keyboards. Arrrgh..these are soo hard to push that my arm muscles are beginning to hurt!

Its terrific to see photos of the park seen through someone else's viewfinder. We spent many an hour there last April & look forward to going again in October to soak up the sun... I should have said to relax in the sun ... we have been soaked to the bone many times when visiting Spain in October!!

Most of the keyboards in my local Internet Cafe (near Plaza Santa Anna) have no, or a least very faded, letters. This can be a problem if you are not used to a Spanish keyboard layout.

Great slideshow! Everything looks so quiet, too - I bet most madrileños are on vacation!

I have only been to Parque del Retiro once (in 1981) and I really liked its atmosphere. For some reason I still remember we saw a group of Spanish Hare Krishnas there. This must have been something really special back then - for Spain, that is!

There were actually quite a lot of people there because it was a holiday. I had been to Retiro in 2002 I think. I don't think I walked around the same place that I did this past time. Retiro is so huge I think I will have to go back a couple of times to wander around some more!!

Well I will be meeting Ben and Marina tomorrow! Maybe we will be up to some hijinks!

I bet Retiro is beautiful in the fall, when all the leaves change colors. Any chance of a video then?

That was awesome! Now I have a better idea of "el Parque del Retiro" that Marina and Ben mention in their podcasts. Keep up the vids. Love 'em.

That was only a small part of the Retiro. I will have to go back to show you all the rest of it. Seriously, it´s huge!!

I am glad you liked it and I will try to post some more videos soon!!

Bien hecho. Fui al parque cuando era más joven... en 1988. ¡Guau - tantos años! (Y ahora me siento bastante vieja.)
