Madrid

So many Tapas

it has been a while since a post has been made. Mainly due to the fact there are so many tapas bars to try and reds to drink.

The markets here are amazing, fresh food, croquettes, oysters, beers and of course the best selection of ham. I spent half the day today trying to understand the various hams. Apparently, iberico hams (the caviar of ham) is young pigs that have eaten sweet acorns for half their life, hence the nutty flavour in the ham. At 125 Euro a kilo, it better taste good.

Madrid rocks, dinner at about midnight and jazz bars and pubs everywhere. Would be a candidate to live for sure...
