Yesterday afternoon after a nap between about 12 and 3 (we're doing the same today except right now I'm doing this instead of trying to catch some sleep) it was beautiful out and the streets were packed with people. We hiked down Paseo del Prado to Calle de Atocha and then headed up the hill to Retiro Park grounds, which spread behind the Paseo del Prado from Calle de Atocha all the way to Calle de Alcala. There were lots of families with children (out of school for the holidays) as well as tourists from all over (we heard lots of different languages) strolling about the park grounds that features lovely views. It smelled like autumn in the air, not winter.
Starting up hill toward Retiro Park.
|Not sure what this is - Don thought it looked like a minaret but I think|
it's Bourbon. The fence capitals - check this one out - incredibly elaborate!
This was taken on our trip up the big hill toward the entrance to Retiro Park Grounds!

We're just about to cross the street to continue our climb, this time
through the entrance into Retiro Park Grounds.
