To write a review about a city one normally has to use abstract adjectives: “magical, special, extravagant, free.” But Madrid has an objective characteristic that from my point of view makes the city what it is many years ago.
Young people in Madrid come and go. Have you fallen in love? The first six months are the most beautiful. Everything is new, everything surprises you, you learn, you discover. Yes, for many people, living in Madrid is like a summer love that (although many disagree) they never get to fully appreciate.
I’ve had the opportunity of living in four different countries and six cities. I was born in Mexico and I understand the “magic” of cultures. I’m even tired of that word. Sure, being Mexican is magical, but what does “magical” actually mean?
Madrid with its mythical neighborhoods, its flawless metro, Puerta del Sol, and its thousand attractions, is one more city in Europe. With its impactful monuments, constant movement, first class architecture, and yes, effectively it’s magical too. But its magic comes from a combination between people who love and people in love. The ones who love are the ones that live here and the ones in love are the ones that are experiencing the romance.
The travelers with their canes cram the streets while the teenagers with their hairstyles laugh, the dance of the bystander’s, all of different ages in peace, harmony and above all happiness, have a choreography that has never seen before in any part of the world. But Madrid’s true gift is its “lovers”; the ones that come to go, the ones who arrive with a ticket to go back.
The lovers are the fuel of this city, you feel and notice when they leave. When they come back everything is new, and those who live here are glad.
