Primavera En España

Last weekend was holiday in Madrid.  It is the anniversary of Spain defeating the French.  There were a lot of festivals and botellons (drinking in the street).  So my friends and I wandered around the city checking out the sights.  One place we found was Tabacalcera. It’s a little art school/ market.  They had a big event with music and vendors.  We explored the massive property with a underground labyrinth of street art.  There was also huge patio where people were drinking and skateboarding.  We could peak into artist’s workshops.    So I snapped some great pictures.  This is the place you can thank for the murals and street pieces covering the streets of Madrid.

 

Then we also visited Parque Oeste for a lovely stroll.

Spring is getting off to a beautiful start.
