My sister came to visssiiittttt!! We spent the week doing what we do best, eating, dancing, eating some more and laughing. A lot. Have I mentioned how Zara is in my top 5 faves? (Even though she won't tell me she loves me back). Also appaz yesterday was national siblings day, so shoutouttttt.
A: So, how was your week?
Z: It was fine, but I had a cold so it wasn't as nice as it could've been - Stop munchin' scrunchin'!
(I was eating crisps during this convo)
A: So, you came on Tuesday right?
Z: Yah, Tuesday the 4th
A: And you just crashed the whole day like a waste
A: So that was one day wasted
Z: But it was such a nice sleep
A: What did we do on Wednesday?
Z: We went on a hunt for your tacos. We went to like 3 places that were closed
A: Oh yeah, lol, everywhere we went was closed at like 4 in the afternoon. The Takos Al Pastor place I wanted us to go to was closed for refurbishment
Z: Yeah, what did we do?
A: We ended up going to the El Corte Ingles rooftop in Callao/Gran Via
Z: Yeah, we went to the rooftop and had tacos there (Central Mexicana)
A: Yeahh, and then what did we do after that?
(Both our memories are trash as you will find out from this convo)
Z: Ohhh we went and saw your friends right?
A: Yeah we went to sit with them at the Torrijas place. Then we didn't do anything at night, we had an early night.
Z: Then the next day, you were doing your exam
A: Oh, was it that day?
A: The next day I came back from work, we went to Pez Tortilla and it was closed
Z: Oh yahhhh, that's what I forgot. Empanadas!
A: Yeah at the Argentinian place (Cambalache) in Malasaña. After that we went back to the hotel, I finished my exam
Z: And I napped a beautiful nap, wow
A: And then we did something after
Z: Yeah we did.. errrrrrr...
A: Goiko Grill right?
Z: Yeah, there we go
A: My burger had a cute little hat hehe. Then we went back to the hotel. Oh no, that was the day we went for churros
Z: Yeah, after Goiko we went to the churros place (San Gines) and then we went home. And those churros just tasted like oil, but it was for the experience
A: Yeah, you just wasted money
Z: Then. The next day was Thursday
A: Friday, I got back from work and we went to Street XO for the best rabbit ever
Z: Yahhh, ohmagaahh. That rabbit was .. we should've just ordered the rabbit and nothing else fam
A: Mhmm that rabbit was LIT. Everything was good, but the rabbit was special
Z: Then .... On Friday I feel like we did the most but I can't remember what
Z: We went to park errr des mantanias
A: ... what?
Z: Mantanias of the park, parque del montañas. Where we climbed your tree and took pictures of the temple thing
A: Hahahahaha Parque del oeste?
Z: Is that what its called? Me it's montañas I saw
A: Where did you see montañas?
Z: That's what it's called
A: Lol okay
Z: Parque del montañas
A: So, we took pictures of the temple, climbed my tree. I feel like we did something else before that.. After StreetXO what did we do?
Z: Parque de la montaña and Parque del oeste are the same thing
A: I've never heard anyone call it Parque de la montaña before
Z: Well, now you've heard it.. Anyway yah let me check my pictures. I can use my pictures to tell me what we did.
A: Good idea
Z: We went to eat all that expensive stuff at StreetXO then
A: Yah that shit was costly
Z: Then we went to your house, then the park and the fountain
A: And the tree
Z: And the tree, that's not high but it's high. Oh, and then we went to have pizza with your friends at Massa
A: Ohh yeahh, that pizza was MAD. I wish we had ordered one each
Z: Then we went to get ice-cream. We are just fat
A: We were so fat this weekend
Z: Mezcla, mezclada, whatever the ice-cream place is called... Mestiza
Z: Mistura Ice-cream. And then we went home, and I got that stupid crepe roll from the place next door to the hotel.
A: Oh yeah, looked so good in the photo. It was now trash in real life. Elz
Z: Next day was the most steps I've ever done in my life
Z: Well no, but it was long. We walked everywhere.
A: According to le fitbit we walked more on Wednesday
Z: We went to somewhere for breakfast
(It's a French-Japanese Hybrid restaurant and 'Furansu' is French in Japanese. Fun fact)
Z: *sings* L'artisaaannn furanssssuuuuuu
Z: Ohhh then on the way to the park we stopped at the nutelleria
A: Best thing about walking, you find all these hidden gems and make unplanned dessert stops
Z: And then we went to the park, cycled with your friends, and saw that cave waterfall thing. And then your friend fell over ha
A: Oh yeah
Z: And then after that we were walking back to the hotel and saw the place literally called 'the best chocolate tart in the world'... Making cute pitstops for dessert
A: Mhmm best
Z: Then we went home, chilled, got dressed. Then went to see your friends, then went to Kapital
Z: They just added me to the party whatsapp group thing now, after I left
A: Yeah same, and I'm leaving in a couple of days
Z: Me that I'm not going to be back in that city for another two years
A: Oh are you going to come here?
(Zara studies Business Management & Spanish in uni and she has a year abroad as part of her course)
Z: Probably, I can't see myself going to Barcelona because you said it's too Metropolitan and I want to go where they speak the most Spanish
Z: Sure. Sooo we went to Kapital and it was wild
A: That was fun, did karaoke
Z: Heh, like twice
A: Like so many times. It was actually a concert, because people were now cheering at the end. And they didn't clap for other people
Z: Yeah, but they're mad .. it's only when we did songs in their language
A: Yeah.. when we did Beyonce they were so uninterested. Then when we did the Spanish songs, they were loving it.
Z: You know when we came on to do End of Time, there was some guy on the stage. And I was like get off. And he was like 'but this is my favourite song'. And I was like 'yeah well its our turn, so get off the stage'. And he was like 'alright fine, since you asked so nicely'..
A: LOL really? In English?
Z: Yeah yeah
A: Lol, I missed that interaction
Z: Yeah, you were getting your mic or something
A: I'm dead
Z: Then, what else.... that sound technician guy gave you the neon bracelet thing and was pretending to be Justin Bieber with the wig
A: Yeah, I didn't really get that because.. how?
Z: I don't know .. blonde wig
A: Hmm.. And then the woman dancing on the stage took your phone and made a selfie video
Z: Oh yeah
A: And we were basically singing all the reggaeton songs over whatever song was being played because they ALL SOUND THE SAME. That was hilarious.. and they finally played a dancehall song. My first time hearing a dancehall song since I've been in Madrid
Z: Paaartyyy Animaaal
Z: Bubblin' a bubblin' a bubblin' a baybaaayyy
A: It's because it also has that same reggaeton beat
Z: Yeah pretty much
A: Theennn we had pizza, pon d club. Then we still went to papizza afterwards to have more pizza. Which I previously thought was amazing, but it turned out to not be amazing
Z: Why did you think it was amazing?
A: I don't knowww.. first time I had it, it tasted really good. I must have been super hungry or something
Z: Hunger hunger hunger hunger hunger
A: And theenn, Sunday we did nothing. Well we went to Tuk Tuk, but apart from that nothing
Z: Yeah we just chilled in bed
Z: Yeahh and in Tuk Tuk and Artisan Furansu we ordered two dishes that they put bloody linseed in, or whatever it's called
Z: Yeah, that spice that tastes like licorice, and I hate it
A: Yeah, that was sad for you
A: What was the best thing you ate here?
Z: I really liked that rabbit
A: The rabbit was the best. For me, the rabbit followed by the pizza
Z: No for me, the tacos were second best
A: What was the really nice thing at the Japanese place?.. Oh yeah the butterfish was maadd
Z: For me, the food at Artisan Furansu was ait. The sushi was peng and everything else was ait. I really liked those tacos
A: They weren't really memorable for me. I'm sad that the Takos place was closed because mad
Z: Yeah, and I also didn't have the tortilla. Such cry
A: Yeah, such sad.. You also didn't have croquetas
Z: Oh, yeah I didn't
A: You also didn't have one ice-cream place that I wanted us to go to. Awks, oh well. Next time.
Z: Yaaahhhh eyyy
Z: What's that your favourite song again?
A: Which song?
Z: Si que tu me no me quiero
A: Haha please don't start
Z: Si tu me tu me te quiere. No men te mentiendo
A: Oh my God
Z: Those are the words, don't know what you're talking about
A: No it's not. It's Mami yo me siento tuyo, yo sé que tú te sientes mía
Z: Tu me tu me no me tuya, si que tu me tu me tuyo
A: You know I'm going to write all this rubbish that you're saying
Z: You can't, it's not real words
A: Watch me
