San Isidro

Today's San isidro, Madrid's saint. That involve a lot of things...
First, yesterday in Vistillas Garden there was an endless party with lots of people anywhere (sorry, the photo sucks)
Second, today every shop (tiny or bigger) is closed.
And third, holiday, sun and free time, fancy a walk? (or let's go to bed if you hadn't slept at all...)

Hoy es San Isidro, patrón de Madrid, lo que implica varias cosas...
Primero, ayer (y estos días de atrás) de fiesta en las Vistillas hasta bien tarde (siento esa pésima foto).
Segundo, hoy está todo cerrado, ya sea tienda pequeña, oficina, etc.
Y tercero, vacaciones, sin trabajar, solecito y tiempo libre ¿hace un paseíto? (o a dormir si ayer la cosa se alargó demasiado...) ;)

Listening to Dover Serenade

I know that's a lot for today, but I've post some pics of my Easter holidays in a little village of Castilla La Mancha in my other blog (Momentos). I'd appreciate a lot if you give your opinion and maybe you're interested about other spanish places but Madrid... :)

I like your photographs as they go perfectly with your narrative. I don't know the significance of the holiday. It must be like our Labor Day.

Have your ever seen the top of two Hondas?

Looks like a crowd in the top photo and the bottom looks so peaceful! I love all the fiestas. I just noticed the question by your clock on the sidebar, too. Clever!!

That looks like a fun party! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'd love to go to Spain some day, so I'll have to come back and see it through your photos. Enjoy your holiday!

Dsole, I love your concept of using photos to tell a story. Your photos match the story very nicely.

Beautiful photos dsole. And no I'm not so lazy. I'm toooo busy these days. Mad days. And unfortunately I have no time to see other blogs. Maybe next week. Have a nice week.

I think the crowd photo does well to set the scene - night shots are hard.

Party hearty and then rest. Looks like a lot of fun.

Muy buenos contrastes, los dias de fiesta aunque duran poco se aprovechan a tope.

I like the three photos - different from one another - the third photo is really nice!
