Old markets, young markets. To follow trends is a must, when there was clothes & stuff now it is food & driks. To go with the flow. Even when you run into a sooo hipster thing, vertical vegetable gardens, soo green the spaniards.
Then those huge weird blocks, pretending to be … I dont know, we have an idiom for that, ‘burro grande ande o no ande’, once again, going with the flow.

Let me confess I do enjoy the classic buildings… also forms, behaviours… so just some of the pieces. The king, yes, with or without your ‘braguitas rojigualdas’ as Sabina would said, the Prado Museum, where you have to go back, I’m telling you, my dear, with me.
Well, the thing with lions keeping in my hands, I won’t write anything but I miss Parliaments like the english, hungarian or chilean.

“I would walk along the quais when
I had finished work or when
I was trying to think something out.
It was easier to think if I was walking
and doing something or seeing people doing something that they understood”.
…hey there, catch the rithm …do dododododododo..
“Candy came from out on the island,
In the backroom she was everybody’s darling,
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side”. Lou Reed
