Happy New Year 2008!!
Happy new year!!
I’m back home. As I told you some time ago, I’ve been to Madrid for the last 7 days to spend my Christmas holidays. I couldn’t drop you a line because where I stayed there was no internet facilities, nor any place with computers or Internet connections. Unfortunately, we had any blackberry or any handle that was wi-fi capable. Besides, we were from one place to another all the time. We had a lot of planned excursions. We visited Toledo, Segovia, la Granja de San Ildefonso, El Escorial, etc. Also we planned some outings to the countryside.
Apart from those trips, we spent two days just in Madrid. It’s a huge city with lots of things to see and experience. On New Year’s Eve we went to a musical. I have to admit that it went far beyond our expectations. We were really satisfied and had a great time. The refreshment was provided, and also drinks were on the house. We had a cotillion bag for each one that had twelve grape seeds, champagne and all kind of stuff that people wear at parties.
The city centre was literally packed with people. The place most crowded was Sol square, where is the famous clock that struck twelve. We saw the “campanadas” (the twelve rings of a bell) during a break in the performance through a big screen that connected with sol square.
Now, I’m drained…..I have to unpack my bags and rest a little bit after having too little sleep for many days…. When one is out, one has to taste day and night life.
What about you? What have you done lately??
