"Madrid’s system of transportation has to be the best in Europe and the most varied because Spanish society has placed a heavy burden on it. That burden is the custom of the siesta which means that, unlike Paris or London, there are four rush hours in the nation's capital instead of two."
It isn't that very long ago (till 1975) when Spain, a country smack-bang in the middle of Europe, was under an "evangelical" dictatorship.
