places i miss: madrid

10 03 2010

oh, madrid.  you treated me with such class and dignity.  i got plump from partaking in your vast selection of out-of-this-world restaurants (how could i ever forget the museum of ham or the underground chinatown?).  you convinced me that gastronomy is a religion and i have always unknowingly been a devout follower.

the lights installed in the sills of your gorgeous buildings brought out every line and arch in the façades, which made my evening walks so pleasurable.  your seven-story nightclubs turned this couch potato into a dance machine, even if i did look like a flailing string bean most of the time.

and the art!  oh my.  guernica, las meninas, the garden of earthly delights, and so much more.
