Two weeks ago, we were relieved to regain the freedom of being able to leave our apartment and go for a walk, as long as it wasn’t far from home. With not much else allowed, however, there was nothing else to do but enjoy strolling around and admire the outside world. It was lovely.
I don’t think I’ve ever looked as intently at the architecture in my neighbourhood of Chamberí, Madrid. Such a spectrum of styles. Some of the buildings are beautiful, some are remarkable in other ways, and some, well, I’m sure the architect’s mother loved them. But they’re all interesting, especially after two months of looking at (and sometimes climbing) the walls of my apartment. I used my phone to take some snaps of many of them. So come for a walk with me, and take a look around the hood!
