Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker

—–
As week 1 in Madrid draws to a close, I thought I would do my best to share the events of our weekend in the city: the highs and lows, the action and excitement, the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.

Let the record show that this old man outlasted my young accomplices in crime on not one but TWO all-nighters!

Granted, I was a self-imposed semi-sober documentarian of the festivities and, consequently, one of our guardians against potential disaster–words to live by: never let a drunk Dane out of your sight– but I still claim the title of El Grand Campeón de la noche!

As for the tally:

  1. How do you say “Entourage” in Spanish?

    Looks like you guys are having a great time! Guess those ordering-at-the-bar Spanish lesson make for interesting homework assignments 🙂

    If Emil is Vincent Chase, what’s everyone else?
