Parque de El Retiro

I only had 2 nights in Madrid, annoyingly I must have picked up a bug on the flight over cos on my only full day I felt rotten :| So only managed to explore a portion of the botanic garden / park close to home. That glass house was awesome, though would have been better chock full of plants… I reckon anyway.

A modern art gallery was in the centre which had lots of minimal shapes and typography made from material, in which I was approached by a German artist who wanted to know if I was a photographer and would I like to pose for a beard portrait if I was ever in Hamburg lol.

There was also a book fair on, the stalls of which stretch a few kilometers along the length of the park!
