The Streets of Madrid

 "Love of God Street"   What a blessed name for a street! We should all be so fortunate to live on a street with a name like this. Calle de la Sal Someone thought to enliven this building.  Nice comic balcony scenes.  Calle Cervantes Both Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega lived on this street. And the Lope de Vega house is open to visitors. You have to reserve to join a tour of his house but the small garden is open to all. Tea Shop in Huertas neihborhood Where there's tea, there's hope. Street sweeper, Plaza Jacinto Benavente  "If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or as Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well'." Martin Luther King, Jr. Calle de las Hileras
