Streets still spic 'n' span in Spain
Here’s one thing you may notice in Madrid. The city authorities do a good job keeping the streets clean. Those pavements look so spiffy, you can almost see your face in them. Nice to see that the cash-strapped Spanish government still doesn’t scrimp on keeping the roads freshly swept. The buildings here on the Calle de Alcalá are looking equally spectacular as well. I count no fewer than three other people seen in this photo raising their cameras in the air capturing their favourite Madrid landmarks. Taken on 5 February 2012.
