Feria del Mercado de San Miguel

Until the end of January 2016, Miami will host the first  “pop up” location of Madrid’s most popular market: the 100-year-old Mercado de San Miguel. We decided to go to downtown to check it out. While the concept is promising and the food is authentic and delicious, the are still lacking a bit in organization, but it just started two weeks ago so I’m cutting it some slack. I think it will improve with time. We’ll revisit in a couple of weeks and let you know how it goes.  Check out the video below and until next week, see you on the road!

Back From Europe

For the past 10 days we have been on the other side of the pond visiting two of Europe’s main capital cities: London and Paris. I have decided, most appropriately to title this trip “A Tale of Two Cities” honoring its namesake, the famous Charles Dickens novel.
Very few things in this trip happened as planned. We didn’t get the seats we expected on the plane, our return flight got canceled due to a pilot’s strike, our Paris host lost our museum tickets, and the weather didn’t always cooperate, among other vicissitudes. Still we made the best out of it and had a superb time.
Since it I knew it was going to take me a while to edit the numerous hours of video we captured during our trip, I decided to make a series of quick daily videos which I released while on the road (thank goodness for the good wi-fi). I would like to share those videos with you now, although crude by my normal standards, they capture the essence of our trip and serve as a preamble, a preview, a teaser of what’s to come. Enjoy the playlist below.
