It's been exciting so far in Madrid. So many new things to see, a new city to explore. It feels much different than Barcelona ... surprisingly different, and that's not to mention the freezing weather. A local friend took us here last night. La Venencia, the most amazing sherry bar. It's been the same since it opened, very pre-WWI in atmosphere with the dusty walls, faded posters, grumpy bartenders with big hands and handkerchiefs around their necks. And the wine ... my goodness the wine. I'll have to write about them later because I intend on going back sometime before we return to Barcelona.
Excited to see what tonight will bring. Here's to keeping an open mind, and to drinking with reckless abandon!
