Loving Madrid more and more

Gran Via

It's been 3 weeks since I came back, I have tons of work, busy weekends and literally no time to take a breath. The time is critical, the trip seems to be finished long ago, feels like 100 years passed, and suddenly I start remembering small details and missing them so much.... Already checking the prices for my next trip there.

I feel like I left someone I love. First week was all euphoria, how good it was, how much I liked it. Then, it looked like I met someone else - work took its course and I had very little time to think of anything else. Third week I started missing it, thinking of how to get back. And now it's been a month and I feel so sad, like I finally understood it is all over and I won't see it ever again. And yes, I am still talking about Spain.

Gran Via
I know, it is not that bad, it is probably called a post-vacation depression :)

But back to the trip... Next morning we went to Gran Via to do some shopping, H&M suprised us a lot in a good way, we found some really nice things. Then walked to Campo del Moro and Palacio Real. Didn't get inside though, but took a very good look around. Campo del Moro is one of the best places in Madrid. And it is so good that there are almost no people. On the whole territory we met two or three people, and when we came to the front of Palacio Real people were everywhere.

In the evening we met our companions and went to the party. We came to the bar, went to the store room and had an alternative party there. Angel was playing guitar, some strange men were singing, people came and went, guitar was changing hands and it was one of the most unusual experiences.

I was just recently in Spain too (came back a week ago), know what you're going through. Did you have any tapas? I felt like I found a new delicatesse every day! And the Rioja wines...
