I’m back from Madrid and there’s just time for a quickie weekly entry. Madrid in August is a scorcher. The evening I landed, it was 34°C (or about 93°F) at midnight when I got into the hotel. Thank goodness for air-conditioning. It made sense to spend my first morning acclimatising at the Parque Retiro – Madrid’s second largest park – where there was lots of greenery and shade, while I did some people-watching … and snapping.

You are not kidding about the heat! It doesn’t seem as bad when your having an ice cream in the park.
I remember eating an ice-cream and having to consume it quickly because it was melting. Satisfying though !
Makes me want to get my bike out and go for a ride. Great shot!
Thank you. I hope you did get your bike out for a spin.
What beautiful dappled sunlight and lovely park! Makes me sigh with contentment …
Green space in a city should be a must everywhere. I had a lovely morning shooting pictures there.
Lovely shot. Very summery and I like those early morning long shadows. 34 at midnight is just too uncomfortable.
Agree. 34 is too hot at midnight. Good thing the aircon was super duper!
Oh, Retiro… so many memories!!! In my opinion early Autumn is the best moment to visit Madrid. There is always a special, bright yet faded light. You should go back then! 🙂
Yes I think Autumn might also be a more suitable temperature. I don’t have plans yet, I will factor that in for next time.
Nice pic. We went to Madrid in December…much more temperature climate at that time. (Suzanne)
Yes December would be more accommodative.
