Madrid No Frills: La Vieja Mecedora

Recently I contributed an article to Madrid No Frills, an amazing website dedicated to uncovering the less well known aspects of the city. If you want to get away from the touristy sites and learn something about the true Madrid, look no further.

My piece is about the the furniture repairers around the corner from where I live, who've been operating in the neighbourhood for the last 100 years or so, the authentic skills passed on from generation to generation.
