 Last night DH and I decided to take a ride on the Navibus. As the name suggests it is a bus that only runs during the Christmas season. It is an open air double-decker bus that drives along a certain route in order to see as many of the city's Christmas lights as it can. The city of Madrid puts up festive lights on certain streets in the center of Madrid. The lights have not changed for several years, but we had never taken the Navibus before.

The Navibus has no stops and you take it from Plaza de Colon.

We had just gotten a new 50mm lens for our camera and we were excited to try it out.  We are still learning but I think that the pictures came out rather good! Most of the photo credit went to my husband as my hands were tucked well inside my mitts.

I'll let the photos speak for themselves, hollar if you have a question. Enjoy.
