The nightlife in Madrid is a calm electricity.  Whatever does that mean?  It is about stylish relaxation and just fun.

It was all aglow with Christmas decorations.

One of the fabulous things about traveling is learning about a culture in a real way.  Learning how Madrid celebrates this time of year is wonderful.  We saw many stalls selling the moss for the nativity scenes.   I was just soaking it up!

Hubby celebrated a birthday on this trip.  I wanted to do something out of the ordinary for the occasion.  So when in Spain, go watch dancing!

I took Hubby to a Flamenco show.  It was simply breathtaking.  We did not know what to watch.  The feet, the hands, the facial expressions, the singers.  It was all so wonderful.  A true experience of a lifetime.

Remember twirling around in your dresses as a little girl?  This was so much more.  The dancers were drenched in sweat after each dance.  I was in a trance the entire show.  It is something we will never forget and feel so fortunate to have experienced.

Tomorrow, I will share with you the all important subject of food!  Until then, enjoy your day!
