Photo of this strikingly dramatic mural was taken by me in Malasaña right outside Metro Tribunal.
Yesterday was Dos the Mayo, the day Madrileños rose up against the French in 1808. We walked around Malasaña and found very little was happening in Plaza Dos de Mayo. So we kept wandering the streets and saw a lot of fun and interesting street art and dolls in window displays. I'll post photos of them next weekend. I don't know this barrio very well so it was a walk full of curious new faces, sights and sounds. A reminder, perhaps, that I should wander outside of my barrio more often...
I'm about to run off to Casa de Campo with some friends for a walk and picnic so I'm just leaving you with a taste of what's to come in my subsequent posts. Stay tuned and come back often.
