To sum up this story, Madrid already knew Natasha from Russia came here. My flatmates who I stayed with for 6 nights, were stunning and adorable. But, more importantly, she had two cats and a dog Ariel The name of the Little Mermaid already made me feel comfortable with the dog. The pet was too welcoming, jumped on me, tried to hug me, and she was waiting for me in the evenings to come home which was so sweet of her! I kind of liked it as therfore I did not feel lonely in a foreign country, somebody waited for me at HOME!
Could not resist of sharing this funny story. The thing is that when I just arrived to Madrid, to the apartment already, I needed the internet, at least for a very little while but I was desperate for the connection. I had an awful time while was entering the password, each time changing the letters. The code contained a large number of letters and numbers and I had doubts about some of them — is it a letter g?
Or maybe j? I love people with interesting handwriting. In other words, do not wait for using the internet tomorrow that can be used today. On my very first day in Madrid it was a beautiful sunny Saturday , I agreed to meet with my Madridian friend.
It happens that I was in the city without any connections except the social network and why should I name it and make an advert for such a successful company with hundreds of millions of users on my blog with 3 readers, ahaha. And if there is a man on a horseback in the square then we are meeting beside him. How much surprised I was when I arrived to the area and discovered that there were the bear and the horse too!
Be precise in your words, actions and findings. When I was with my Spanish friend Nacho , everything was excellent. He helped with the translation of a menu; helped with the selection of dishes and even taught me how to eat bread as I was doing it in a wrong way.
The bread which was fresh and crisp was given to us with a soup on a small plate. So I experienced the Spanish culture of eating bread although, I think, in all restaurants it is considered to be the norm — break off a small piece of bread.
Also, having learned a few words in a foreign language Spanish I mean , I was able to amuse and surprise the waiter. I am sure. Well, I know that the traditional Spanish omelet is cooked with onions and potatoes, but a huge loaf for breakfast? It was such a delicious and not heavy breakfast, hahah. I was lucky staying in the city center and it was just a 5 minute walk for me to the market, which is located in the district of La Latina convenient to walk from the metro station Tirso de Molina.
I was curious to feel the atmosphere of this place and understand why it is a famous attraction for the tourists. It put a smile on my face when noticed there was such a mannequin lower body. I regard this as an example of glocalisation. Of course, not all of the Spanish women have such impressive curly forms, but I think most of them do.
Probably they need a special permition for selling the stuff there, at the market… so I had to leave my shop with the Russian dolls matreshkas , bottles of vodka and buckets of caviar. I was in the underground, listening to my MP3-player when realized that one of the standing women there although it is possible she was the only one who stood at the time talked something out loud probably about politics, as I understood and then another stood up an ordinary passenger and answered aggressively to the first one, all in a raised voice.
This story illustrated that the underground in Madrid is like a stage full of presentations and entertainments, and sometimes your trip can turn into something more than just the use of transport. I want! I am coming! However, it was some kind of a challenge to find the place even with a map. Some people I met on the way were trying their best to help me while exchanging only with gestures and body language.
Maybe I had some troubles of finding it because I imagined it to be a pompous, impressive and remarkable place. The stadium has the fourth highest category League and it has a current capacity of over 80 spectators.
I looked at it outside and was very glad about such an opportunity. In fact, I was really impressed by the building and the atmosphere that reigned around. I even wished I was inside, because of the match that was held there at the time. There are various guides, websites, programs, travel agencies that advising to visit the Retiro Park to any tourists being in Madrid, and it is understandable.
But for me personally, the park del Oeste was something really great! Well, it is my opinion because there is less information about it on the Internet and I also did not hear about it in the travel tv-programs.
Actually I went there accidently while wandering around the city. I liked it for its open space, it is kind of huge and full of different species of plants that simply immerse you in another wonderful world, you immediately forget about your daily problems and any worries you may have.
There are people having picnics, walking with their dogs, playing with the kids, getting some tan, etc. And even with a large number of visitors there, you feel pretty good and comfortable, as the park itself is huge and, for sure, on any day and time you can find a secluded place and be with yourself, all alone, separate from the real world.
It is absolutely magical! Being an artist, I could not miss the Prado Museum and, of course, I visited it and managed to spent 4 hours there while coming to Madrid for only 4 days. What can I say about this museum? Of course, it is huge and very interesting.
The collection of the works includes the world-famous, such as those made by Titian, Goya, Rubens and others. There was a double entertainment waiting for me at the museum on the day of my visit. It was different from an unusual visit to a museum. As soon as I entered the Museum of Sofia , it immediately impressed me with such a spacious space, even a lounge included the only art object, which straight away attracted the attention of a foreign camera and flash.
I was lucky enough to get my ticket just a minute before there was a crowd of students, thirsty to discover the world of art although they may simply followed the instructions of teachers and their school program. A painting by Juan Miro , which illustrates a head and a spider.
It was nice that the hospital had this date in its title. One of the places I planned to visit in Madrid was the area AZCA, which are famous for its skyscrapers or at least tall buildings , offices, and I would say it is a modern part of Madrid, which is different from its historical center. I mean I was interested to see different areas of the city. I am not going to share the origin of this name and history of the buildings, as I was confused myself. But I suppose that anything can be interesting for a Siberian person, well except the snow and cold.
There was a little botanical garden at the station which was kind of extraordinary. I think I really love the height. Therefore it was impossible to resist taking a cable car and see the city from a different angle. I accidentally saw an advert of something called Teleferico Madrid and voila… I was there in the cable car. However, it was an amazing experience! During my short voyage it was telling me some interesting facts about the city, the countryside, the park and the plants that we were passing.
At some point I began to talk to the radio too, feeling that I have got a new Spanish friend In general , it was interesting. Dear readers especially those who managed to read till this part. I deliberately started my post with a French greeting because this post is going to have a French flavor and it does make me happier.
So here we are having a little break from my Asian adventures while tasting some great music, artistic atmosphere as often happens on my blog. Where is going this happy post to? It needed to be smth magical, beautiful and remarkable. Yes, except of writing the blog, I draw, I dance…what a talented girl I am and modest most importantly. However, I do like his voice, the way he sings and I found a lot of his songs wonderful. Log in Sign up Buy images Sell images. Share Alamy images with your team and customers.
