Madrid, España - Day 5

After a few days of relaxing from over dose on Tapas, Sangria and Flamenco.............we decided to see some more of Madrid. DUDE!! I had the most awesome calimari sandwich ever!! They loaded this thing up! Brandi had a big ass tortilla sandwich, which she wolfed down!!!  BTW way, the Mexican's are probably thinking......WTF is an Irish Lassie eating bread with tortillas??  NO!  Tortilla is a Spanish Omellete ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tortilla_de_patatas ). It's really good.  After washing it down with a few pints of Estrella and wine for Brandi and Estela. Off we went with my lisp speaking spanish. HOMBRE!!!  Though Estela's lisp is natural. OKAY.

Party time in Madrid. Spanish style.  This is fiesta is called  " LA NOCHE EN BLANCO " ( the white night ).  What happens is Madrid's city center is closed down for one night. 8:00 pm to 3:00 am, and ALL of Spain shows up for this fiesta. Well it seemed like it. EVERYTHING was opened that late night. EVERYTHING!!  This truly was an awesome experience I had no idea I was going to run into.
