This is going to be the first of a series of Rastros pictures taken on my last trips to this strange and at the same time wonderful contradictory place… point of union between cultures, social classes, where you can find almost every thing, and when I say every thing I mean every thing… let me show u…
Oh! And before I forgot is really crowded so be careful with your personal stuff…
El Rastro is the most popular open air flea market in

Madrid Skyline is not easy to catch. But from some bulidings is possible to aprecciate the wonderful lanscape of roofs of the XVIII-XIX century quarters. At the right we see the CORRALA, a Madrid building type, Dwelings around public Patios to save space. And in the skyline it appears the TV tower called PIRULÍ.
Plaza de la Corrala and Plaza de Agustín Lara

Last public demostration has been lead by the conservative party against the negotiation of goverment and ETA.
People dressed with the spanish flag, flags as signs handed by people. This is a new behaviour of this side of the wealthy and conservative society, going out their houses and churches, to shout against the homosexual marriage, against the negotiation with Eta, and probably the end of the violence in Spain. It has been very strange to see them walking in the streets (they don't go out their neibourhood), going on underground with all their children, shouting while wearing fur coats. At least ...bizarre

a sitting-room, a dining-room a bed room. I know these people, I have been watching their skills to make a comfortable place for some years. They prefer living in the street. In winter they lie on the metro air-chimenies, and sit down like sunflowers all in the same direction. When I hear them speaking it seems to me SILENT FILM SCENES.

4 towers are the conection between Kuala Lumpur and Madrid. In the end of the main axe: 7 kilometers of Madrid longest street: Castellana, 450 m height.
The cuestion is: the era of the Towers hasn't end up?, Hasn't it changed the paradigm of the citis? Towers are symbols of what?...

Here we have a new madrid inhabitant, he is spending the whole winter in this place: Plaza de Jacinto Benavente, besides Plaza Mayor. Most of the time singing & dancing without shoes and socks , claiming something to heaven, giving thanks and practising the art of being in the world: invading the time with singing and little movements.
Somebody searching for superheroes in front...we found him...

we ask you: what activities can be perfomed inside a van? Why not using the m3 of space to develop activities instead of fulfill places with things. The surroundings of Plaza de Cascorro are always a tasty place to find the thin line between the fresh living and the boring life.

La Dehesa de la villa is not an urban park but a forest absorbed by the city… with its 60 hectares, and 850 years of history is one of the biggest parks in Madrid… The neighbourhood is fighting for that the town hall doesn’t convert this beautiful stop in an urban park full of asphalt, street lamps, and all kind of stuff were public administration like to spend money… For now la Dehesa still keeps its charming, at the same time savage, but cared look… I’ll go back to read my newspaper now…

San Francisco el grande dome… 33Mts of diameter… Bigger than St. Paul in London, or that ‘Les invalides’ in Paris… it just takes your breath away… for a moment the Pantheon comes to your mind… and you just don’t know were you are any more… The temple dates from 1784 and is the work of the architects, Fray Francisco Cabezas, Antonio Pló and Francesco Sabatini…

On second plan ‘La casa de la Panaderia’ by Juan Gómez de Mora on XXVII century, typology that inspired Juan de Villanueva, one century later, to draw ‘Plaza Mayor’… The actual building and ‘affreschi’ were restored in the early 90’s.

serenity and hysteria at the same time. the impossibility of taking care of someone close to you.

Where are we when we listen to music?,
Where are we when staring something as if time was not running off?
is it a deep thought inside mind or is something light which occupies only the skin?

Sunday mornings: the most authentic street market in Madrid. El Rastro. It is a market tradition. The whole quarter of Rastro and Plaza de Cascorro wakes up full of things on street. The sellers differenced by areas show off incredible ancient things.
This rumenian couple made us stop for a long while bewitched by bizarre songs and eastern energies
