Quiet City

25 Jul

Today I ate a long lunch (salad with olives and goose) with Pitu and Carmen in the city.  Instead of taking the extra train to the 10 I make the walk to Alonso Martínez in the watery afternoon sunshine.

It was so strange to amble down empty streets (except for the sweet newspaper reading grandpa), past vacant sidewalk cafes in Chamberí that are normally bustling with people eating, drinking (and often smoking as well).

Well–I have not been bothered too much by the quiet city, reminding myself that in just a few days we will be vacationing in Costa Ballena…
