Remembering being in Madrid in 1999
Dragging bags down to a train station to put them in a locker while we visited the Prado. In a full hall of people moving around looking at Las Meninas. The photo I took shows everyone in the hall moving and the figures in the painting standing still. Poking our heads into galleries and wings full of vases and sculptures and deciding they were boring. Sitting down looking at paintings and not really knowing where they were from. Buying postcards from the gift shop. A very dry-feeling city, no waterfront, no big bridge over water.
