A Selfie in Madrid

A Selfie in Madrid

I loved staying in Madrid. There’s a great buzz there and the streets were packed with people. Great for street photography. Not so great in this pandemic world.

Landing in Lanzarote

Lanzarote Airport sits right by the coast. There’s a beach at one end of the runway where you can get great photos of the landing planes.

I wonder what the pilots think of the onlookers watching at this dangerous stage of a flight?

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

As seen from El Caminito del Ray Our guide explained that a family lived here for many generations until after work stopped on a nearby power plants. The property was occupied long before power plant workers were seen in the valley and while they were there they made life easier for the people living here. The house is very far from the nearest village and the occupants subsisted on farming until they started trading with workers.
Apparently workers stopped walking El Caminito del Ray in the 1970s(?) and life became more difficult for the people living there. Within a generation or two the building was abandoned.

Some of the final moments of the 1965 movie, Von Ryan’s Express, were shot near here on the railway behind this house.
