It requires subscription to NY Times site to view Sad. I have so many subscriptions I don't remember my username and password to some sites sometimes Smile.

Really, does it?

At some point, especially when I moved, I just subscribed to online NYT.

but wait, that is free....

I also subscribe to the Washington Post on line, and would for other places if they but offered it.

I'd dearly love to subscibe to the LA Times, and have them send me stuff, but they don't do that, at least the sending part.

Subscription don't mean money, in this case, George! I use the same name and password for all these sites - makes it easy.

You mean you can't just click on the link I gave and get it? It is in today's times, or maybe tomorrow's... just look at NYT Times.com and look at Travel

dagnabbit, I know their week old stuff costs to check out, but this is new.

I am one of the four or five people on earth who has no interest at all in Gaudi, sorry, and I keep hearing that I should be interested. But I am interested in Madrid and its museums.

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza (Prado) offers a good online tour in English, the Prado shows some pics as well, this site gives more information about Madrid's museums as well as this one.


[Osso, from 79 € onwards from my local airport to Madrid :wink: ]

There was not much to look at in the Madrid article, osso.

Any visuals from Madrid?

Had a wonderful time at the Prado and Reina Sofia. Super saturation!! Madrid is a very beautiful city although I found the Spanish to be somewhat stand-offish. Barcelona is a fantasic city with art everywhere. The food is better than in France and if you stay away from the tourist stores, you'll get a lot for your dollar. Oh and when in Spain, just wear black.

Kayla, I have what I think is a cool photo I took of folks at a train station in Italy - all in black except for one woman at the edge of the frame wearing gray, and the black outfits varied from the old fashioned to 'recent style' . Hmm, I might have put it in the travel photo gallery here, I'll have to go look.

Stazione at Empoli I see I edited the edge of the woman in gray out of the picture.



Ah, I'd love to go to Spain...

We spent a week in Madrid four or five years ago. I've never thought of myself as being too interested in art, but the Prado left me awestruck. We only had time for 3/4 of a day there during the trip, but if we ever go back to Madrid, we'll definitely block out at least three days for the Prado.

Picasso museum over in Barcelona is spectacular as well. I loved Madrid, way back when. Didn't find folks at all standoffish, though I was usually drinking with them. Great long summer nights in Madrid.

Main memory of the Prado, oddly enough, is going through and trying to find the drunken fool in the corners of all the pastorals...
