And just came back and not as bad but heat nevertheless. 38C about 100F no rain but nice as always in Madrid.
I was able to get to Atocha from Doctor Esquerdo all the way to Menendez Pelayo along the Retiro park, glorious walk of youth.
And most important, visited my old baseball field still there at Polideportivo La Elipa, now with a huge complex of pools, and cafeteria. USed to play baseball here with the Real Madrid CF yes you got it, they sponsored it. Then went on to play football.soccer with them too.
Great memories going up to the park on foot in the heat; Madrid is heaven.
