All good things come to an end (the same goes for bad things too) - unfortunately.
We really have had a wonderful time in Madrid. We both NEEDED the rest and some sunshine. About the last we can't complain - each day around 35 Celsius, which is not too hot for walking. You only need to take care you drink enough water (and a beer from time to time).
There areore than enough restaurants around where you can dine well and for our standards rather cheap. We've been enjoying tapas and the Iberico ham. Not yo mention the great wines made here.
But tomorrow it's back to cloudy and rainy Belgium where a heatwave will probably come when it's winter..o
