Today’s adventures brought me to the Estrecho Metro stop—a train station opened in 1929 in a working class neighbourhood called Tetuán.  A lead on the Internet brought me to Hiper Comics, owned by José. Tetuán is made of approximately 49% of retired people, 11.74% unemployed, and 35% of the overall population is immigrant (source: FRAVM). Tetuán is also known for problems in education (source: http://www.tetuanmadrid.com/erosion-educacion-publica-espanola/).

Ill prepared for a summer rain, I ran to my destination, Hiper Comics, and talked with José (50) about the Movida.  I also purchased some rather important fanzines/primary source documents that I have been trying to get my hands on for the better part of the year.  I plan to return soon to interview him.
