Shack in the center of Madrid

by Carlos del Solar

A shack made out of wood, cardboard and plastic suddenly appears in the middle of a plaza in the center of Madrid. On it, one of the ubiquitous standard “for sale” signs one can find in every street in this town.

A comment on the extreme housing situation that has been developing these last years, with prices doubling and quadrupling while square meters get to unlivable minimums.

Undoubtedly addressing a hot issue, the piece caught the attention of the media. It was featured in the printed and online versions of national daily El Mundo.

Chabola en el centro de Madrid | por Carlos del Solar

Una chabola hecha de madera, cartón y plástico aparece de repente en el centro de Madrid. Sobre ella, uno de los clásicos y ubícuos carteles de “se vende” que se encuentran en cada calle de esta ciudad.

Un comentario sobre la extrema situación que la vivienda ha alcanzado en los últimos años, con precios que se duplican y cuadruplican mientras la superficie llega a mínimos inhabitables.

La pieza, que sin duda trata un tema candente, llamó la atención de los medios. El diario nacional El Mundo la reseñó en sus versiones online e impresa.

    Mira Hair Oil is a simple item to make use of, all you have to do
    is to try using 1 / 2 a teaspoon or even a
    full teaspoon at the most plus massage the oil directly on
    your scalp and hair. Identify your own hair trouble and go for a product which mainly
    addresses your needs. These can be expressed in a number of
    ways: straight hair, slightly wavy hair, or curly hair.

    All-natural oils such as olive, coconut, and avocado oil can be used as wonderful hot
    oil treatments for hair. Customers have always
    given Moroccan Oil products the highest ratings.
