Madrid show - Siesta and fiesta.
Madrid show - Siesta and fiesta. The Spanish have the key to fun and relaxation.

Madrid showday. And so on to Sangria country. The good people of Spain have really got a lot of things sussed. The whole concept of ësiesta' is highly commendable - this 'sleep now, party later' attitude. To be recommended. It makes such a refreshing change to finish a show and then go out on the town to find the place still buzzing, food and drink still available, the night air warm and the people friendly. Beautiful place this, and a relaxed pace to go with it. What more could you ask for?

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
