While Madrid itself is an amazing city to explore, the surrounding countryside is perhaps the most dreary I've experienced for a European city. Flat, drab, lifeless... and it seems the only way to get out of the city in any direction is walking alongside a freeway.
I'm hoping that Leganes will redeem my quest to turn Madrid in to Superhike. Leganes does have a nice park, a couple of interesting statues (like a ...

In addition, there were some high profile guests at the palace as security was tight. The press were everywhere and I saw the motorcade leave.
