Another grey day with a prediction for rain. Nevertheless, we headed out in search of men’s silver rings.
Some grafitti the city graffiti cleaning crews have not cleaned up yet. Or maybe they don’t clean this street.
Shops on Calle de Fuencarral where Scott found some rings.
Casa de Correos where the provincial government is housed and where the ball drops on New Year’s Eve:
Lunch was on Robin. We went back to Leon de Oro where the city wall remains can be seen below the floor of the dining room.
|Sauvignon Blanc from Valladolid|
|bacalao (cod) with pine nuts|
|cocochas de merluza (hake) with potato|
|lubina (sea bass)|
Cute mural of a cat on a roof.
More city wall bits.
It rained a little while we were having lunch. Walked nearby to look around Mercado San Miguel. Too bad we had just eaten because there were a lot of good looking things including these egg shells filled with chocolate.
Back to the flat to figure out how to do some laundry and have a bit of birthday bubbly.
Then off to dinner. I forgot my camera so the following are iPhone photos.
|apple and foie gras|
|langoustines and crab|
|arroz (rice) and mushrooms with partridge|
