Luxury

As they are closing the RENFE tunnel in 7 days, I bought again the general Madrid Transportes coupon for both the metro and the cercanías services. Today, I've travelled through Nuevos Ministerios again. The station is so spacious, light and clean, a perfect opposite to the Recoletos one. There is a reason we call it "Manhattan" with Gabriel, with Recoletos being "Queens". One week of luxury!

Lol. Come to think of it, I've never even noticed whether it's spacious nor not -something that I like, since I hate small places-, but all the times I've been there were during the rush hour trailing a case, bound to the airport. Quite stressful memories about it in actuality!

Oh, if you hate small places then you shouldn't think about taking the train from Recoletos. Like never. It's a very stressful place.

The best station, by the way, I remember seeing (then again, I haven't seen many) was the Berlin Hauptbahnhof

Yes, I assume it's an amazing station. Slightly controversial, but what isn't.
Today, I have been impressed by the Metro station at Chamartín. I have never been there before and I wanted to check it out before the tunnel closure. They've constructed platforms for two additional Metro lines that don't exist at this moment!
