Madrid : party like no other

Monday, February 2, 2009

We were pretty much thrown into the midst of it all. Who can party like the Madrilleños??

No exaggeration. New Year's Eve celebrations start on the 30th going right into breakfast, and starting up again the next evening. how can they keep up? old and young, all alike.

Wandering through the windy little streets with buskers, flamenco dancers , great tapas, sangria and the most amazing churros!

yes churros. might not look like much in the image but San Gines is the best.

one of our favourite moments is in the mid morning of the new year, watching many party-goers welcoming in 2009 by stumbling their way home half-wasted.

we quickly grew fond of the siestas. there's no way you could survive living like this without one of these.
