Thursday Night Lights


Preface: Last Thursday was the Constitution Day in Spain, which meant that no one had to go to work or school through the weekend! We even had a late morning practice!!! Many families used the occasion to stroll through the streets and stop by the market in Plaza Mayor, and buy funny hats. (I have yet to figure out why the hats and wigs are such a hit but it is rather fun to see people decked out in them).

I have always loved driving through Sacramento to see the city lit up during the holidays and enjoying the different displays. Instead of personal houses, in Madrid the different neighborhoods and streets put up beautiful displays brining light to the cold wintery nights. Thursday night, Balazs and I decided that we would walk around and document the wintery light display. We were warned by roommates that it took over 20 minutes to cross Plaza Mayor because of the throng of people, and since Balazs’ spanish teacher had recommended we check out La Latina for great lights, we headed there instead of the starting in the center of the city. Instead of describing our tour I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
