One interesting note is that while the name appears the same the pronunciation is different, "MAD-rid" as opposed to "Mah-drid". This also applies to several other Madrid's in the Unites States.

The Iowa Arboretum is located in Madrid, and we are looking forward to seeing what else is there to capture!

What sights do you think we should look to document in Madrid? Have your own interesting shots of this place? Feel free to share them via the comments section below!
