I love thee as I love all that we have fought for. I love thee as I love liberty and dignity and the rights of all men to work and not be hungry. I love thee as I love Madrid that we have defended and as I love all my comrades that have died. And many have died. Many. Many. Thou canst not think how many. But I love thee as I love what I love most in the world and Ilove thee more.

-- Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

The sense of history in Madrid is palpable. Every street corner, every park, every plaza is imbued with it. You can drill down, but you'll never reach the bottom of it.

-- Guy Roger
