I dreamt vividly of winter last night. Real snowy, cold winter.

The day dawned gray here in Madrid, with the same 40-50 degree F weather we’ve had all month. I had arranged to meet a friend in La Latina for the post-Rastro bar-hopping scene. Right before I left the house, it started pouring. By the time I surfaced at the La Latina metro station, the sun was shining hot–perfect for meandering among the crowds along the Cava Baja, to Calle Almendro, stopping in a few bars for cañas along the way. And at the end of Almendro, we found ourselves in the Plaza de San Andrés. Beginning to warm up to its springtime role, it was full of 20 and 30-somethings, sitting and soaking up the sun (when it didn’t disappear behind the clouds), drinking liter bottles of Mahou, smoking…We grabbed a bocadillo from a nearby bar and joined them.
