Thanks so much for your messages! Now, I can get excited aboout this really happening. It sounds very good...especially walking...not taking the metro! I prefer to walk when I am in Spain! And knowing that it is a good neighborhood for my girls really eases my apprehensions.
Having your recommendation, I think I will accept! (after I speak it out with my family...of course
) thanks!! One note to MadridMan:
having this forum for this kind of situation is SO invaluable! I am so grateful to have this way to communicate with people who REALLY know certain areas of Spain. Thank YOU MadridMan...
