2016 bids farewell and, as far as Madrid locals and visitors are concerned, there is not much to regret. In these times that’s not a venturous appraisal. Spain’s capital remains an agreeable place to live in and exciting to visit. According to a recent survey, Madrid ranks high as a city with a top quality of life. People who come here, feel welcome and that’s important, for starters. Then, there’s a lifestyle which combines a sense of belonging with a variety of cultural and leisure activities which makes life less burdensome.
Of course, perfection is unreachable but that’s O.K. “nobody’s perfect”, as Joe E. Brown tells Jack Lemmon in the ending line of “Some like it Hot”. The year that comes to an end has brought to “madrileños” and visitors much to feel satisfied about. Art exhibits like Bosch’s 5th Centenary at the Prado Museum and Renoir’s “Intimacy” at the Thyssen-Bornemisza; operas like “Otello” at the Teatro Real; rock concerts which brought old timers The Who and Neil Young to the Mad Cool Festival; events, entertainment and hook-ups between locals and visitors, everything a twenty-first century metropolis has to offer. Madrid is a faithful provider to all those who seek the warmth of human communication. Local soccer fans were envied and admired the world over as Real and Atlético, the city’s teams, once again fought for the title of the Champions League Final in Milan.
All this and much more attest to Madrid’s ability to generate excitement, its cultural strength and easygoing lifestyle.
