Another view from my balcony, this time of an evening a little while ago, before summer started in earnest. I love looking out here, watching people coming and going. Today there was a procession from the local church, plodding slowly down the bus lane carrying a small Virgin Mary. Another time, a motorcade of literally hundreds of motorbikes cruised down the road. In May, there were regular traffic jams for people on their way to Las Ventas, for the bullfights of San Isidiro. One Monday afternoon there was a parade of old fashioned horse and carts, with people dressed as chulapos and suchlike. Even at night, there's always something to see. whether it's los borrachos, or the binmen wearing their bike helmets.
