Someone recently suggested in our Spain forum that this picture is worrying on several levels. Primarily, what the hell is going on with Mickey and the spangley yellow jacket?!
Whether Mickey is there or not, I strongly suggest avoiding Sol and all adjacent shopping streets on Saturday afternoons… unless you particularly enjoy being hustled around amongst thousands of painfully slow moving shoppers, who do their best to second guess your every direction change and impede your escape at all costs.
Luckily the abrazos gratis (free hugs) girl was there to provide psychological support… If only I could have got past Mickey…
More on where and what to avoid in Madrid coming soon!
