Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes. - Sep 2019

Absolutely. - Jun 2019

Definitely, definitely, definitely. - Mar 2017

Yes, I'm glad we came here. I'm glad we're only here for 3 years, though. Some people hate it, but I honestly think they would hate every place they lived...there are much worse places to live out there. Trust me, I know. Overall, I like it and think it's a great opportunity to live here. - Apr 2012

Definitely. - Nov 2011

Yes, but I would do things different. I will live more like a tourist and not go deeper into their culure. They are brutally cruel with animals for example their celebration named Toro de la Vega, they are not responsible with their pets and I have seen the worst animal mistreatment here and for them is normal. Besides they are very racist, the spanish can be obnoxious, loud and close mind about any body who is different to them. They don´t like americans and will tell in your face how fat and stupid americans are among other things. The way they treat people from latinamerica and africa makes me sick. - Oct 2011

I don't ever want to leave. - Aug 2010

Nope, don't think so. We're making the best of our time here - traveling, studying Spanish and we've made a few good friends in the expat community, but it has been a long 18 months so far. - Feb 2009

Absolutely. I could live in Madrid for years. - Jan 2008
