It was 90 degrees in Madrid today. We stayed in the shade as much as possible. In the middle of the day, we wound up in Parque de El Retiro. Hot and tired from all the walking, we found a small outdoor cafe in the middle of the park, overlooking Estanque Grande del Retiro, a large pond in the center. San Miguel may not stir notions as a must-have beer, but as we rested tired legs under the shade the trees provided, it was just about perfect.
