Nunca fatigo de querer Madrid

 

 

IMG_0733IMG_0708 Junior Year in Spain (1966) may have worried my parents into  Senior citizens, but it expanded my horizons.
In 1999,  Larry & I visited Madrid together and traveled to Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba and many towns in between.   En route to Morocco (2015), we flew in/out of Madrid and enjoyed several days there.  Madrid swings!
