On Spanish time

Driving from Granada to Madrid, you go straight through the Sierra Nevada mountains and, in some cases, you go straight through them.


It’s pretty stunning scenery.  And Madrid itself is pretty stunning. Less is said about it than Barcelona but it definitely has the charm of the big European capital.  Palacios.


Sunsets making the opera house go all oozy buttery.


But there are very Spanish things about it, too.  Ham stores with an entire wall of whole pigs legs, for instance.

Markets full of sherry and vermouth on tap.


Old bars where black cats sit in your lap.  That’s Spanish, right?


Anatomically correct animal statuary.  Extremely Spanish.


More tomorrow.  It’s 3AM.  When in Spain, be on Spanish time.
