My starting point begins in Madrid, and follows through to Toledo, San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Avila, Segovia, Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Valencia, and finally 'Vicky Christina BARCELONA'.
Upon arrival in Madrid, fighting jet lag and an overnight flight, Alex and I made our first stop after dropping our bags at our hotel: Chocolate Churros. We found our way to a cafe hidden through narrow streets (a common theme in Spain) behind a beautiful church close by to Puerta del Sol (overtaken by recent protests).
Nothing breaks a serious case of jet lag quite like the taste of chewy churros dipped in rich dark chocolate and a coffee (mind you that in Spain, the coffee is served in small portions--forget about that Venti Red Eye). Things were getting good....
