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.
I have to admit , I love the vibrant colors.
Of course they had a Christmas market.
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.
We went to …
The people were lovely and the dancers were passionate. I know, I know, all Flamenco dancers are.
Here are some of the sights we experienced.
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!
