Madrid is unbelievable, but very interesting.
Many people say that Madrid is a very boring city and there is not much to watch. However, I feel that it is full of life, in addition to a serious leisure life, there are occasional small surprises to add fun to the whole city.
In addition, the Spaniard's overall feeling is also very good, although most of them do not speak English, and occasionally encounter one or two will be very poor, but it is really a more enthusiastic nation in Europe. Just like traveling in Latin America, even if the farce is constant, the ending is always complete, So is in the same mood as the long-lost blue sky, and the pleasure is clear [heart]
