PARTY PHOTOS! The following are only a select few of the many party photos but I think I chose the best 4.
What fun we had! A total of 10 people showed up, including two which were under 5 years old! These two are avid posters on the message board but it's really difficult to understand what they're writing as it appears they simply bang on the keyboard.
Other MadridMan Parties have been fun but somewhat unmanageable due to the size. This time we had 8 adults sitting around two tables put together and we could all talk easily at the same time without shouting (except for when the Big Band started playing behind us). In all 8 adults, we were one Brit, two Spaniards, and 3 United Statesens (a.k.a. Americans
Most arrived at the terraza shortly after 8pm and we waited for a good 15 minutes before a table came available. Most all stayed until about midnight. Time really does fly when you're having so much fun with lively conversation with great people, wine, GOOD food/tapas.
You'll notice in the below photos that member la historiadora
is "pixeled out"- which is a real shame. (she's internet-photo-shy. Maybe she had a bad experience once)
