Where did everyone go?

Everyday the sun rises over Madrid. 

But in August, it rises over a ghost town. As all madrileños flee to the coast or other parts of Europe the streets are empty.  
Nope...no one here. 
 During the day, the cafés and bars have no customers.
 And many stores simply shut down for the entire month. I can´t really see how this helps Spain´s struggling economy but hey people need their vacation!
 Not even kids in the park??
Needless to say, there ain't too much to do in August. I can't believe I'm saying this but I am actually excited to get back in the routine of working. Bring it on September!
