    dear Mad-About-Madrid,
    Great web site ! I am a Spaniard, living abroad, and currently visiting my “Patria”. Your web site provides excellent information and great bar reviews ! By the way… can you suggest where I can find a British social club here in Madrid where I can meet up with Brits ?
    ¿ Muchas Gracias !
    Ernesto.

    Hello,
    I’m currently living in Madrid and with the temperatures rising, I would want to find a natural pool or “pantano” nearby madrid to spend saturdays or sundays accessible by public transport because i dont have a car!
