It'd be great to get together! May 15th, San Isidro Day, falls on a Saturday this year. A lot of people travel this weekend.

I won't be able to make it on that Saturday but maybe the Thursday before or the Monday after. cheers

Saludos, MadridMan

Trying to figure out when the best time would be. It looks like we are going to spend a day or two in Granada to see the Alhambra. I should know more about that side trip on Sunday. Then I will know more about when we are available.

Hi, We have our tickets for the Alhambra and the bus to Granada for May 16 and 17. We are deciding on a hostal today. After looking at MM and other comments about the San Isidro Fair, we will probably go there earlier in the day. Also going earlier because of our early bus to Granada the next day.

So we look forward to a get together May 12. 13, or 14 for whoever is available. Since I don't know Madrid, except for what I read here, please MM, Steve, Jazz or whoever else might decide to come, please decide on a good meeting place. From my side it will be me, my daughter Julie and maybe one another college student.

Both Julie and are are looking forward to this. I wish Esperanza could be there, but maybe next year.

In all confidence that this volcano erruption will be be completed!

Steve, is there a certain bar you liked in Albaicin? Or a certain hostel in Granada?

On a different note, I noticed that you are from Southend-on-Sea. I have only been to Europe one other time. That trip was to London, but we did spend an afternoon in Southend-on-Sea visiting with my Grandmother's cousin.

Hope you are able to make your trip home later this week.

I should have added that we are considering Costa Azul, which is one that MadridMan has mentioned.

Esperanza tells me how good it is to meet you, MadridMan, and others from the Forum. Julie and I have been working on our plans for the coming week and hope that MadridMan and others could meet for lunch or tapas on May 13th (Thursday). I know you previously mentioned that you were free to come on Thursday evening, but we had not firmed up plans. If you can come, tell us the time and place, we will be there.

Even though Julie is a student there, she does not know the more centrally located places to go (they keep them pretty busy at the school!).

Now the volcano needs to stop so that I can fly in Tuesday morning!

Esperanza (and her family) is GREAT company. We've really enjoyed ourselves the times we've met.

I can make it for either lunch or an early-evening tapas crawl, either way, on Thursday May 13th. And hopefully others can come along too. I'd be willing to bet some terrazas would be warm-enough for food-and-drinks on that night.

YOU decide if you want it to be lunch or an early-evening for tapas and we'll choose a meeting place.

Saludos, MadridMan

Alright, we choose early evening tapas. We had hoped that Marisa (Eseranza's daughter) would have been able to join us, but she will be out of town. The 2 girls know each other slightly from the university.

So now it is your turn to name the time and place. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Elaine and Julie

BOINK! partypair

Tomorrow's the day! See you all at 7pm. And if weather patterns are any indication, it should be cool but rain-less - even though they've predicted rain every day this week and it hasn't rained once.

Saludos, MadridMan wavey

The weather's not looking too good. I has rained a little here and might do it some more. Terrazas might be wet so we may have to be indoors. Too bad. Plus, it's rather cool! See some of you in about an hour!

Saludos, MadridMan

It was really good to meet you all -I enjoyed the evening (especially the company and the croquetas :o) )
