February 23: Tapas


After the blinds are thrown open this morning in proper Eastern European fashion, and the best shower I've had all week:

1. Real Jardín Botánico: Resting on a bench at Museo del Prado, I look out a small window onto the Royal Botanical Gardens.
2. Madrileña: 'What, me? Stress? About who is going to take my garbage out? And do my laundry?' Joy!
3. Free tapas with drinks and Lego paintings on the walls: all that is right with Madrid on a hopping night out on the town.

What is excellent about this city? The metro. The museums. The shopping. The food. The people. And, of course, the men.
