I made it to Madrid this morning and it’s huge and awesome!!
steps at the metro station in Madrid
cute little pool on the 15th floor of my hotel. Thanks capital one points!!
these guys are all holding strings that are attached to each corner of the sheet their goods are on… To make a quick escape I think. They did that in Italy too and ran when the cops came.
the cave restaurants… I’ll be there tomorrow
very cute side streets
the Royal palace
the church across from it which I think is written into dan browns new book, origin
and he wrote about this altar also!
changing of the guards
beautiful fall colors
ok this place!!! Mercado de San Miguel. Amazing!! You can get tapas for 1€. And they are all gorgeous! I ate my way through this place. A woman in Lisbon told me about it.
olives olives olives
drinking wine in the market at noon
sausages to go
A type of baklavah… So flipping good
oh my gosh…. Burrattas with blueberries and almonds…. To. Die. For.
i might get brave tomorrow
pulpo for dinner!
famous churro and chocolate place!!
and then I found a place who sold tickets to flamenco at the last minute for 11€. It was absolutely amazing! Spanish guitar, a guy singing who sounded like the guy in Gypsy Kings, and three amazing dancers. The guy moved his feet so flipping fast it was a blur!
I saw flamenco…. In Madrid…. In Spain!!!
