    about especially when describing aspects in great detail. Amanda and I went to
    the National Opera house to check out ticket prices before heading back on the
    metro- hopefully we will be able to catch a show before we leave. I rode the
    metro back alone like a champ, not needing the map or anything which made me

    ... but, in need of water, we head back up the hill to the Plaza Oriente and find a shop selling refreshments and fridge magnets. Result!

    Next stop is the Mercado de San Miguel. Established in 1915 this temple de tapas is a bustling, fascinating place to grab a glass of wine and a small plate of patatas gratin, jamon tostada and queso y seva quiche, all of which we do, sadly missing out on the fabulous prawns, octopus, squid and razor clams ...
