Madrid, Parque de Juan Carlos I

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

What isn't apparent is that 2 minutes before taking this shot, I cleared the damp grassy slope of enough flat field-mushrooms to feed if not an army, then certainly me for the following week! (Mushroom omelettes, that kind of thing!). I hate to say it but they are every bit as tasty as the plate sized field mushrooms I used to pick behind the Gurnard's Head Hotel in Zennor, Cornwall for breakfast!

Many thanks El pare de la Clara, although I don't understand what an elephant left out of an account means!

Best wishes, Andy

I must be thick, but try as I might I still can't see any connection apart from the King's name!

!!!!!! Even so, I really don't understand what an Elephant, the King and 'watch out!' has to do with the photo!!!!!!!!!!!!
