Hiking in La Pedriza

Before the hell of looking for a job began, my friends came up with a great idea: A hike!  After days going from city to city being surrounded by people, it was nice to see some nature and relax in the sun.

It was a short bus ride and a walk from Madrid to our hiking trail in La Pedriza. On a sunny afternoon, us and many other people were enjoying the summer weather: Children were playing the river; people were walking their dogs; other groups were snacking and chatting while enjoying the view.

Something that struck me was the landscape resembled New Mexico.  The desert plants, colorful mountains and bright blue sky.  It felt like I was in the Sandias all over again.  Memories of of camping and outdoor parties came to my mind.

Now I’m back in the city. While I love the busy streets and crowds of people, sometimes I long to sit on a rock and listen to a breeze.
