Chose this hotel because of great reviews and was not disappointed. Absolutely central to everything. Tapas bars, macdonalds and metro right on the doorstep and taxis a sitting on the curb. Double glazed windows, a bit of traffic noise but not a problem. Would certainly like to

It make us both feel very lucky to be doing what we are doing right now and very aware that many people in this country and world are struggling right now. Overall we have had a wonderful time ...
... now, and it was absolutely incredible. Basically, what I got from it was there is a lot of robbing and stealing going on by all politicians, and nothing is being done to stop it, let alone punish those involved. People are outraged, but there is no judicial action occurring. The politicians, according to Antonio, "are more worried about if the gays can get married and adopt babies than the corruption occurring and the people struggling from the crisis". Specifically, ...
... visited a cathedral which was more famous (albeit much smaller). The cathedral itself was nothing special, but it housed the painting by El Greco which you will find at the link below (I was unable to take a picture). The painting depicts the burial of Count of Orgaz which is believed that St. Stephen and another St. (I forget the name) came down from heaven to bury him (as seen in the picture) and his ...
