A Walk en el Parque

Do you like to go to the park? I do. My favourite park in Spain is in Madrid, the capital city. It's called Retiro Park (or Parque de Buen Retiro en Espa├▒ol) and it's enormous. It has a large lake which you can hire paddle-boats on. My favourite part of Retiro Park is next to the boating lake. Here, all sorts of performers come to show what they can do. You'll find magicians doing tricks, singers singing and musicians playing songs. But my favourite performers are the puppeteers.

Now there are many groups of puppeteers who come to Retiro Park, but my favourite are the sheep.

Here are two examples, and I hope that if you ever get the chance to visit Madrid, you'll make time to stroll in Retiro Park, maybe take a boat ride and, if you're really lucky, get the chance to see Michael Jackson, the sheep. It's thrilling!
