    Favorite thing: The Retiro park is the well known spot to cool down in summer. A less known spot, but nonetheless very relaxing is the Real Jardin Botanico. Its situated south of the Prado. There is a diversity on trees, bushes and medical spices. South American plants are there too. The garden is designed by Ortego under Carlos the third. its not that much overcrowded by toursists so you can wander along in rest.

    Favorite thing: There are many signs for Monuments around the city and interesting street sign in tiles...Parque del Retiro is one BIG park that people cannot miss but I found this sign very interesting. It has the name of the park in English & Japanese.

    The Parc El Retiro

    King Alfonso XII monument in the Parc el Retiro

    Favorite thing: The Parc El Retiro is one of the best urban parks that I ever visited. Situated just a short walk from the Prado, it is a lovely shady expense where you can hide from the hot Madrid summer sun. The park is host to several large 19th and early 20th century monuments like the one pictured here of King Alfonso XII. This gives it a certain regal atomsphere that I enjoyed. There is also a large lake where you can rent rowboats if you like. Finally there are two crystal palaces but oddly enough they were in a poor state of repair when I wandered through the park.

    Favorite thing: At the Warner Park.. in the Scooby Doo tea cups... Do you a favor and do not start spinning the cup before the ride starts? I was sooooooo dizzy when I got out that I had to sit for about 5 minutes to stop seeing the world turning around me...

    "La Warner"

    Favorite thing: I had such a wonderfull time at this theme park! I went there at the end of october, the place was almost empty so I had the oportunity to ride all the atractions (also the water atractions... although the day was cold :) ) ....

    My tips for the park...
    1) Dont lose your time in "El hotel embrujado" line... the atraction is boooring and the line is criminal....
    2) Try to have lunch before or after "lunch time"... You will have to wait in line the same as to ride an atraction... Also the food is REALLY expensive...
    3) There are "fast passes" but you will have to pay for them... Ask at the entrance.

    Can a person find quiet in the Big City?

    sizzling Madrid!

    Fondest memory: This girl managed to do just that, hmmmm?!...there off to the far right, sitting herself down and taking a breather on a scorching summer day...she's right there in the open yet seems to be enjoying a fair amount of solitude as well...
