Artistic Madrid Day and Night

My trip in Madrid was brief but fun, with lots of silly posy photos.

It was nearing Christmas so the spirit was up in the air as I checked into my cozy guesthouse.

Unfortunately, I landed in the city during a long weekend holiday and everywhere in the city was packed with tourists from other cities and neigbouring countries.

There were plentiful of art galleries in Madrid, as it turned out, for visits. And though I've had enough of museums, I thought it wouldn't hurt to visit one to check out the buzz.

Turned out even that was impossible to do.

the queue to art collection museum in madrid
This queue is as long as it seems and even longer. The queue bent of both ends of the four blocks of buildings.

Here's a large photo of it in 1000 pixels.

Why was there such a long queue?

Folks, this was just a typical long weekend holiday in Madrid. Yes, those are tourists. And no there isn't an iPhone sale going on.

In fact it's a queue into the art gallery at the corner.

Which I wanted to visit but decided against it for obvious reason. o.O

Here are two photos taken while I was standing in the middle of the queue, taken from both sides.

I never knew the Spanish people were so big on arts till... this!

So I went to visit the palace instead.

The lady at the shop sew my name on a piece of paper as a souvenier.

She was smiling before this but because she didn't understand when I asked her to pose with my sewn name while I take a photo, she got a bit tense. I made her tense. :(

I saw these candle holders that were SOOOOO pretty.
