To adramad: Guide books

  • Hola Luis

    I was not referring to your note but to guidebooks like Frommer's, Rough Guide, Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor etc

    Sometimes they don't give an accurate picture. Most of them gloss over Madrid and just mention it has a lot of museums, art galleries and nightclubs appealing to the 20 somethings. It's always best to know somebody locally that can take you around town. I hated Jakarta the first time I went but liked it when Indonesian friends drove me around the 2nd time I visited. And 3rd time too. Sometime I just forget the guidebooks and go to a high lookout tower and head for anything around that looks interesting. Or scroll around google maps and their virtual tours.

    Stay cool!
