Comeacrossness: MADRID EDITION (Day 5)


This was the last day of our adventure. Erik and I woke up early (but not too early)and had a quick brunch, so we could have time to visit the Caves. Their location is at the North-West of the town, and they are not far from my home, so we went on foot.

The accessing to the place has improved a lot in the last years. When I was a kid, you had to walk on the edge of a very dangerous road, but now there are sidewalks (pavements in BrE), signs showing the way to the place, and things like that: it is a true tourist enclave.

Comeacrossness: MADRID EDITION (Day 4)


Unlike the previous days, I had to be awaken on my last Madridean morning. It was almost midday when a loud knock on the door woke me up. It seems that I finally got used to sleeping in there.

After having a quick breakfast and making sure no-one left anything, we bid farewell to Habbit's home and rushed for the train station. On the way, Habbit's mother phoned him, saying that she was arriving back from the town. We were so freaking lucky! If we had left off just some minutes later, we would have been discovered.
