Madrid Weekend- 2

Warning: Slightly photo heavy post. ;)


 coat, tights- Zara, bag-Balenciaga

Sunday morning was spent at the Prado Museum. There was an exhibit of Auguste Renoir´s paintings at one of the salas but the line is too long ( for entrance tickets and entrance to sala) and so we opted out. Instead we went to see Rubens´works, Velasquez´ Las Meninas and Goya´s The Naked and the Cloth Maja.  We only had until midday to see the sights and then presto, off to my cold city again. huhuhu!




I planned to wear this pair but I got blisters after one day of walking with it and so silver flats it was.

 ring- Sfera

On the way back to the train station we stopped by El Parque Retiro. Glad to have stopped here. Everything is nice and colorful in the heart of  old and gray Madrid.




 Can´t stop taking a photo of these buildings at Alcala street.


Further down the street, a huge crowd was settling in at La Puerta de Alcala. They´re having sound tests for the MTV Europe Awards that night. Too bad we had to leave for Vitoria in the afternoon.


I was hoping I could see a few  uhurm, ¨stars¨  and photograph the cool guys of Linkin Park of which my li´l Sis was a diehard fan but all I saw were overexcited fans of God knows whom. Okay fine, so I was a little giddy too. hahaha! So that´s how my Madrid weekend ended. Oh, and we stopped by the Reina Sofia Museum too but that would be in another post. ;)

Enjoy your weekend, dahlings! :)

ola Che! looks like the snow has not reach Spain yet. Here it's already dark and gray ;( I hardly see any trace of autumn.

Love your bag and it's a pity that your brown leather shoes gave you blisters.

Haha, I miss our coincidences! :) My silver flats weren't that bad actually. I walked all day in them while in Philly, but my feet started to hurt in them when I wore them during my DDR workout lol.

These photos are so clear!
