Un Cafe en el Retiro
I don't think I'm alone when I say the Retiro is one of my favorite parts of the city of Madrid. Its beautiful gardens and stunning waters are just part of what makes it such a nice place to spend time. Unlike Central Park in New York, el Retiro doesn't feel overly crowded. Everyone has their own space and enjoys themselves without feeling overwhelmed by the presence of others. Luckily I am a short walk away from the park, making it a perfect place for daily runs. Yesterday we met some friends there in the evening and walked around, familiarizing ourselves with the park a bit. Towards the end the jet lag hit me harder than I've felt since being here, but that just meant I got to treat myself to a delicious Spanish latte while watching the rowboats!
