Happy Spring!

Children playing soccer in a Madrid square

I’m back in Madrid. (São Paulo later in the week.) While out wandering, at Plaza de Canalejas, to be specific, I came across in a downtown square what one comes across everywhere here—boys (and girls!*) playing football. The kids were weaving their way around and through the numerous “civilians” like me wandering in the plaza. (*Girls’ participatory football is the fastest growing sport in Europe—and a few clever marketers are starting, in a glacial way, to “get it.”)
