One Spanish city at a time: Madrid

Hola, amigos y amigas. 
Wander Iggy sends her love (and lotsa Pinchos/tapas/Pintxos--depends on which city we are referring here) from Spain's capital city of Madrid. 
We loved it there--it's very cosmopolitan and alive.

At the Palacio Patrimonio Nacional  (no TJ hotdog jokes here). 


Ventured into Plaza Mayor. Madrid has several plazas. Add up will all the other Spanish cities and you will understand the social vibe of the country. The plazas are where people have been congregating for the longest time. 

Like any Madridista, we had to come visit the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

 And say 'hola, mi hombre' to our crush number 3, Xavi Alonso.

And this sums up why we love Madrid.

Plazas are <3. They are indeed the hearts of every city (and the markets are the tummies, haha). :) And hola, Xavi! (cue Spanish eyes Spanish eyes)

Hispanics sure love dancing to their own music with a passion! Ole!

Sabi ko na nga ba, si Xavi ay susulpot in one of your posts...or La Furia Roja in general. :P
