Factory behind Las Palomas - Same view in 1989 minus the factory - Sheep bells instead of an alarm clock every summer morning - Rear view of Las Palomas from the field.  That field, as you may be able to see in the Google Earth pictures below, is now completely covered with streets, homes, plazas, etc.  Madrid continues to expand outwards.

The same region now (taken from Google Earth).  The yellow pushpins in the picture above are the same location as the four pictures further above.  The picture on the right is of the back of Las Palomas in Canijellas.  The empty field in the picture on the right and which is shown in the second picture from the right is the area that now shows just above the yellow pushpin.  I'm glad we got to live in Spain when it was still more of an Old World country than a modern European Union country.  While it was very poor at the time, the Old World atmosphere, culture, and ambience were truly unique and unforgettable.


Las Palomas townhouses at Canillejas.jpg (97481 bytes)

Picture from Google Earth:  The three story apartment house noted with the yellow pushpin is the same one seen from the rear across an open field in the picture further above on the right.  Our pool was filled from a well and had no filtration system.  Once every two weeks, the gardeners would drain it, scrub it, and pain the sides with some kind of disinfectant.  Then it would begin filling again.  It took about 48 hours or so to fill it back up.

It seldom happens that any felicity comes so pure as not to be tempered and allayed by some mixture of sorrow.
-- Miguel de Cervantes
