You’re from Madrid…

You’re from Madrid…

1280px-Plaza_Mayor_de_Madrid_02If everything seems cheaper when you leave Madrid.
If you only go to museums when your out-of-town friends come over.
If not knowing anything about your next-door neighbour seems like the most normal thing in the world.
If when you get served a “Mahou” you don’t miss your homeland’s beer.
If when you’re out of town you realise you can’t buy bread on a Sunday afternoon.
If your plans to hang out have to be made more than a week in advance.
If you’ve discovered super-cool parks other than the Retiro.
If you think the Plaza Mayor is for tourists and haven’t been there since you arrived.
If you realise when a taxi-driver tries to get too smart on you.
If spending an hour a day to go to work you seems too good to be true.
If you thin-out on the weekend of December 6th when everyone you know comes over to Madrid
If you take the subway without giving the billboards a single glance.
If you know who to call to get that difficult ticket.
If you avoid the Gran Vía on a Saturday afternoon.
If a car jam doesn’t surprise you.
