While out one day, wandering around by the royal palace (still used on occasion for royal events) we just happened upon this band playing near a park. It turns out they're the official Madrid Police Band. I had no idea there was such a thing.
This might be the place where a more cynical person would make some sort of remark about police officers playing music in a park while Spain has one of the highest petty theft rates in Europe, but I certainly wouldn't be the kind of person to do that.
I will say, that if I were to join a band like this I would definitely want to play the cymbals. Just look how much fun they seem.
