    Plaza SOLution Metro Entrance

     

    The protesters use a play on words to rename Spain's most famous Square "Solution Square" instead of SOL which means sun.

     

    The protests that got lots of attention in national and international press are there, but not that big of a deal. There are more turists taking pictures than actual campers and the surrounding shopping streets are actually more packed than the plaza.

     

    It is important to note that there is no violence, everyone is working well togther to avoid problems and to not damage anything.

     

    Volunteers are handing out sun-cream, water and food, directing traffic to reduce the impact and the kiosks are open for business as always.

     

    However, on this sunny "day of reflection", just before the elections, it is much harder to get a table for lunch at one of the terraces than to move around the always-busy Puerta del Sol, eg SOLution Square.
