Right after the fourth day of sessioning in Lisbon, we drove to Madrid even though we had a sleepless night in the van. We arrived in Madrid early in the morning. And the early beauty of the city amazed us all. No more time to slobber over Spain's capital, it was time to find a hotel for the night.

We hit up a spot in Madird at the hottest time of the day (the sun in Madrid is a beast). Somehow Madrid surprised us with some amazing spots: perfect rails, places for originals curbs, kinks - from a skater's point of view - everything you dream of is in Madrid. We even dropped by accidentally on a nice roundabout which was inaugurated by Mathias. We also spent some time at the xbattles's rails which is the home for dozens of rails, and even a small sweet curb in a kindergarten.
The level of the housing is another story ... The hotel that we rented was actually an appartment in the neighborhood of some prostitutes. The first night we ended up being in a prostitute's bar accidentally. We spend the whole night to go around the block from bar to bar. A funny and expensive experience. The second night was way better: We finally found some normal bars, good atmosphere, and beautiful girls in every corner of the streets.
The three days in Madrid have seemed the be way too short. It's already time to hit the road for Barcelona.
