First days in Madrid

February 2, 2008

For a person like me who grew up in Southern California, Spain in general and Madrid in particular have a special touch of home. Certainly if I’d want to get a good feel for the “European” Southern California I’d have to travel to Andalucia in southern Spain.

One of the matters that makes Spain such a special place is that it has developed socially in leaps and bounds during the past 40 years. It has a touch of Latin America but without the social problems. In many respects Madrid is a near-perfect city for me. I look forward to making this my new home.

Once I get an apartment and settled in, I’ll file some pictures of the city for everyone to feast their eyes.

    Happy settling into life in Madrid, Enrique. beautiful city. When I was there 42 years ago I got into a fight with a waiter in a cafe, because he tried to double bill me for lunch and coffee so I left him no tip. He was incensed and followed me down the street shouting rude epithets. It was in Madrid that I saw El Cordobez in a bull-fight. Great city! Hope you settle in a good place. G

    Hi G, many thanks for your nice thoughts. Too bad about the waiter. I haven’t had such problems but if I do I will sure raise a stir. I hope you are enjoying yourself in BC.
    Yours,
    E
