Oh my...I have been back in the US for 2 weeks now and I do soooooooo miss all the fun of Madrid, Segovia and Seville!!! I find myself checking in on the Madridman message board just to re-connect to that wonderful place...I think I may have left a bit of my soul there!
Having experienced all the great things, it really is difficult to pick 3 I'd love to bring here....but I really do miss the
chocolate con churros!!! the cafe con leche and the free eats with my wonderful vino tinto!!!
Ahh....vpf

Sofia: I cannot help you out on the food and drink, other than to suggest an organic garden in the back yard. As per the lots of walking, let the gas prices keep rising, and you are going to get your wish. The sunshine, or lack there of in New York, ever thought of relocating to the desert southwest of these United States? Hundreds of thousands of people have. We have about 360 days of sunshine per year. Granted, it gets a little warm from May to late October. In 35 years I have never had to shovel the "partly cloudy" off of the sidewalk. From now until late October I will use about 25 gallons of Gatorade, and ten bottles of SPF45. When you visit this area you will realize why the Spaniards gravitated to this area and North Central Mexico, as there are many simularities. smile smile cool

Hola habitante del desierto americano!

Las Vegas is tied with Spain for my favorite place to be because of the:

1) good foods on the buffets
2) ambitious walking from casino to casino
3) abundance of sunshine
4) Lets add good drinking for both places.

Now, the ultimate is to go to both places. One year i went to Las Vegas for Christmas and Spain for February vacation. That was the ultimate.

"The West is the Best."

Sofia: What you wrote in your post with the four points, means you have truly been to Lost Wages. All four points were right on the money. There is, as I am writing this, a reenactment of the "Spanish Trial" over the mountians west of LV.The desert southwest has a little more hostile weather than Spain, but other than that they do resemble each other. By hostile I mean the summer high temps. smile

Someone said Cafe con Leche for 1 Euro.

I can get a very good cup of coffee at my local Dunkin Dounts for 98 cents far cheaper than a euro and just as good. My local Dunkin Dounts does have good coffee and it is far better than the awful Dunkin Dounts in Madrid with that thing they sell calling it a dount. I cannot believe the lines I saw in Madrid for the awful coffee and dounts being sold.

Here is my three

1 - La Taurina Bar in Madrid

2 - Wellington Society's night tour in Madrid

3 - Flamenco show Casa Del la Memoria de Al-Andalus in Seville.

Come to think about it. If they were in New York City were I live they would lose their Spanish appeal. So leave them were they are and I will come back to Spain to visit.

BillfromNYC: If you went to Madrid and then to the Madrid Dunkin Dounuts then you deserve whatever you got. Only an American would do something like that. You would have to be a true conesour of dougnuts to do that, are you by chance a police officer? wink wink smile

Wow, Desert dweller, thats harsh! Maybe he just likes his morning routine of coffee and donuts from dunkin donuts and when he went to spain, he didn't want to break the routine! My father was a police officer by the way, he's diabetic so donuts were out for him. He was the police officer that had a bran muffin while his partner got a bear claw!
