Chris Jones, on Madrid. And Penelope Cruz, Eventually.

Esquire‘s Chris Jones on Madrid, while actually writing about Penelope Cruz:

Madrid is a spectacular city. It can feel, in the height of August, when so many Madrileños make for the cooler coast, like the most serene of the great capitals. It is golden in the heat. The buildings are low and sun-bleached and ornate, grand palaces and tidy commercial blocks, tied together by plazas that fill and empty with people like lungs. Life in Madrid in August feels like the most enlightened way to exist – just one small, subtle beat of pleasure after another.

October, 2014.
