One more Sunday of confinement, one more Madrid Spain Postcards. Today we share the viral text of Iris Raboso Guijarro, from the UK, who has captured like no one else the hospitality and the feeling of belonging that she reigns in the capital.
You speak very badly “,” Those from the capital “,” They are cool “… but those of Madrid have something that we cannot explain, because we have the best of luck to have everything next to (or near), but we also have the misfortune that the bad always arrives here before and that makes us see the beautiful less beautiful and that the bad is less bad, because of the bad habit it will be, but that’s the way it is …
Those of Madrid have the good vibes, those of Madrid do not value, those of Madrid do not care, those of Madrid are irresponsible, those of Madrid go to yours, those from Madrid ignore …
And today that we are empty, that we see rain from the window, that we see desolate the streets through which we have all traveled … today I remind you that Madrid is a little bit of everyone.
It was yours when you came to study
when you came to a medical appointment,
or you came from sales,
when you went to that famous musical,
also when you went out to party with your friends,
is nice when you got lost in its museums,
and when you paid a visit to a family member,
walked through those famous streets that are deserted today,
or came to work every day and even lived here,
you saw your favorite group or team in a huge stadium,
and you had to endure insufferable traffic jams,
you made it your city, for love,
as well as you came to catch a plane,
came to see the christmas lights,
when you went out for tapas,
when you rode the subway first thing in the morning and couldn’t even move …
Madrid is a bit of everyone and that is how we like it to be,
with people from all over,
strangers who lead incredible lives,
people who cross the same streets every day
with smiles at people you will never see again,
with help from someone you’ve never seen before.
And yes, we are also missing and have many things leftover:
we lack a sea to bathe in,
a lonely cove,
a lonely place to see sunrise or sunset,
we have plenty of pollution, we have plenty of lights, we need a field closer …
But nothing is perfect
you just have to know how to see and value
and, when we lack something that we do not have,
because we travel to find it,
to make another site a little ours too,
just as Madrid was yours …
Because you belong where you are,
it doesn’t matter what a standard says.
Madrid, soon we will enjoy you again,
those from Madrid and those who don’t feel like they are from Madrid, that here …
You are all well received.
