City park.


Svalbard, Canary Islands, and Spain

4/3/2015: We stopped in at the park waiting for the Prado to open. I think that there was more birdlife in this park than any other area we visited in Spain, and all of the birds were very habituated to people being around. I was finally dragged away in order to visit the museum.
