    Infection connection

    May 31, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Today I got to experience the Spanish health Care industry. Thankfully, I have health insurance coverage while I am travelling! The doctor was very nice, she had a small office on the first floor of an apartment building near Charmatin train station.

    Apparently, I have a sinus infection and Otitis media, which may also be infected in both ears. Unfortunately for my ears, I fly again tomorrow night. :( The doctor was not particularly happy about that fact, but not only do I not have another time to do this, the travel is not refundable. So, hopefully with antibiotics, decongestants and gum, I will survive!

    Spanisch essen mit Freunden

    December 12, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    Joachim: Heute treffen wir uns mit einer Brieffreundin von meinem Schwiegervater. Sie haben sich vor 40 Jahren in Leverkusen kennengelernt. Schwiegervater hat bei Bayer gearbeitet und Frau Morena bei AGFA. Sie ist mit 24 von Leverkusen weggezogen und seit dem haben Sie sich jedes Jahr zu Weihnachten geschrieben.

    Seit 35 Jahren lebt Sie nun in Madrid. Seit der Zeit in Leverkusen haben Sie sich nie wieder gesehen.

    Wir waren sehr lecker Fisch essen und viel über Madrid in deren Bewohner erfahren.

    Vielen Dank für diesen wundervollen Tag.

    Ann: Für mich war das ein wichtiger Tag, konnte ich so wieder ein Stück Vergangenheit aufarbeiten.

    Madrid and the Embassy day 2

    May 22, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We had to wait until 3pm to pick up our emergency passports so this meant staying another night in Madrid. Went to reception to extend the stay only to be told the price of the room had gone fron 79 Euro to 290 Euro for that night. After going back to reception they felt sorry of our situation and gave us the room for 169 euro.
    Decided to use the hop on off bus for the day and headed off downtown on it. Got off in the centro again and had a wander around then back up to the embassy to get the passports. Took the metro which we thought stopped close by. It was a bit further away than we thought and it was raining so had to taxi the last bit. Walked back the hotel then metro again back downtown. Took the tourist bus again but it got caught in traffic so got off and walked. Found dinner at a local restaurant that did local food. Filling but not that exciting. Back to the hotel for an early night before our next big drive. The main square in old Madrid was very beautiful, huge even by European standards and very buzzy. We found a market adjacent to the square which was more like freestanding food stalls. It was really fun and the food and drink was so different and tasty. We got a plate of padron peppers which are like tiny green capsicums lightly fried in garlic olive oil and sprinkled with rock salt. The coffees and cakes were lovely too!
